“Is The Alexander Technique About Good Posture?”

The Alexander Technique is often described as “posture training”, but this is not accurate.

The word “posture” is often associated with stiffness or rigidity, whereas the Alexander Technique is really about increased mobility… freedom of movement… poise and balance.

Practising the Alexander Technique will make you feel less rigid or stiff. You will sense an improvement in your postural balance and feel lighter and more upright

During lessons, you will discover how you habitually and unknowingly pull yourself out of shape … you will also learn how to prevent these habits and maintain poise and balance in all your activities… even when you are under stress.

With each lesson, you will also gain insight into how you create problems for yourself by relying on your habits. And you will gradually learn to change your dependence on these habits in favour of a conscious, reasoned and positive approach to life.
