What is the Alexander Technique?
The habits we form in the way we think and use our bodies can be harmful or ineffective, reducing our freedom of movement and freedom of choice. As we go about the activities of our daily lives it is easy to unconsciously use too much muscular effort.
The Alexander Technique is a movement re-education technique. It teaches us how to be more relaxed and effective in our daily activities, resulting in reduced back and neck pain and reduced tension related to poor posture. It can also help with co-ordination, movement, breathing and stress-related conditions.
How is the Alexander Technique taught?
The Technique can be taught on an individual basis or in small groups. During the lessons, Jeremy uses a gentle guiding touch to help the pupil discover ease and balance of movement in common activities such as walking, sitting and lying down.
