Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique teaches you how to regain muscle elasticity and bone support. If a person can regain their muscle elasticity & bone support, they are more likely to self sustain and self-regulate good posture and movement.

That means you get to use your muscles, bones and nervous system in new ways. It’s like reprogramming your movement. This can lead to many benefits, breakthroughs and upswings.

You learn to let go of the bad “stuck” habits that make your movement feel painful, awkward and misaligned.

Alexander Technique helps you to  understand how to move your body with new underpinning knowledge.

Experience ease, poise and dynamic energy in your movement.

Here’s what our students say:

I was led to discover more about controlling my movements including standing, walking, sitting and rising.  Very comprehensive but in a manageable staged sequence. I became very aware of my body and movements and my ability to make conscious decisions on how to move it.

Michael is clearly very knowledgeable but does not overwhelm with jargon. He communicates clearly and provides ample feedback.  No question or observation from me was too trivial.

I have been pain free for quite some time now. 

The new studio is very conducive to calm and quality treatment.  A wonderful setting.
