What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique was developed by Frederick Mathias Alexander over 100 years ago. It is a gentle self-management technique which aims to change unhelpful habits and reduce unnecessary tension in all activities of daily living. It can improve balance, mobility, confidence and self-awareness, it can lead to greater control over one’s reactions and better posture.

It is taught by a combination of explanation and discussion alongside gentle hands on guidance. It isn’t a set of exercises but a way of approaching life which can be applied in any situation. Find out about learning the Alexander Technique here.
