Many of us operate in our daily lives and professions with excess tension patterns and expenditure of energy. F.M. Alexander discovered that the stress of modern life challenges our sensory perception causing us to adopt habitual tension in the body and mind. Through Alexander Technique we learn tools to increase our sensory awareness and to recognize unnecessary patterns. Through touch and anatomical mapping, Alexander Technique gives us strategies and choices to eliminate pain and stress at the source of our tension patterns. This study is a doorway to self- awareness, not only of our physical patterns, but of our mental and physiological patterns as well.
Who Studies Alexander Technique?
Alexander Technique is useful to anyone who desires more awareness, ease, and efficiency within their professional lives and/or daily activities. Alexander Technique can apply to many activities such as speaking, singing, walking, running, working at a computer, stage anxiety, performing arts, and sports. The application of Alexander Technique is particularly useful within the performing arts or any highly refined skill development. Singers and actors who continually lose their voices or breath, violinists with tight left shoulders, pianists with wrist pain, golfers with tight shoulders and lower backs, etc, may be all challenged by stress and tension patterns within their activities. Such artists and athletes can greatly benefit from the study of Alexander Technique, as patterns of misuse become exaggerated when one is practicing and fine-tuning a difficult activity. While we all have seen performers and athletes that make their art look graceful and effortless, ease and coordination in activity comes not only from innate talent, but it can also be learned! Clients find natural ease within everyday movements, deeper sleep, more efficient and effortless breathing, greater balance and poise, and are able to be present to the demands of their daily lives and relationships with less effort and more grace.
