What is the Alexander Technique?
Taught worldwide for more than 100 years, the Alexander Technique is a practical method for moving with more balance and ease, and for having dynamically supportive posture. This increased support can improve comfort and performance in all activities, from walking, to talking, to driving, to working at a computer.
You may be surprised how effortless “good posture” can be, and how pleasurable it feels to be more at ease in your own body.
