Alexander Technique Applications

Looking at easier ways to develop a better balance in our lives. Discovering the importance of the Head-neck-back relationship, or Primary Control, facilitating better psycho-physical awarness. A primary illustration is how we choose to sit — not just the arrangement of our physical body, but the mental/emotional influences that affect the outcome. The F.M. Alexander Technique is primarily about changing habits of mind and their outcomes — improving posture and poise.

It is one way to co-ordinate ourselves and our reactions. How to overcome harmful habits. Recommended for anyone wanting to improve their poise, movements and speech. All ages and abilities are welcome. There will be individualized attention, and lots of time for questions, references provided for books/internet. Brief video/DVD segments will add to the mix of the discussion and participant selected daily activities, along with training more accurate observation skills.
