The Alexander Technique is a scientifically and medically validated method of learning how to re-educate yourself into a balanced physical and mental wellbeing.

The Technique makes no claim to cure ailments directly, but as they gain a better general standard of health, improved muscle tone and better co-ordination, Alexander pupils usually feel better and in many cases symptoms that have been distressing them disappear or are lessened.

Alexander Technique lessons give the pupil the stimulus and training to become conscious of movement habits previously below the level of consciousness, and to distinguish between necessary and unnecessary effort. This guidance is directly transferable to the activities of everyday life. It will allow you to breathe more easily and perform activities less harmfully.

Alexander work involves each individual in a dynamic learning process that helps you move better whatever your activity. It is NOT as is often mistakenly thought, a means of holding a upright posture. Rather the good, easy posture and the improved functioning that you learn to develop are a dynamic result of your being able to make the best of yourself and to function at your optimum, whatever age or condition you are in. Alexander saw it as a rediscovery or re-education your natural self:

'When an investigation comes to be made, it will be found that everything we are doing in this work is exactly what is being done in nature where the conditions are right; the difference being that we are learning to do it consciously.'
