The Alexander Technique is an educational process. It is a form of mind-body re-education based on the premise that positive changes in alignment and breathing can lead to positive life changes. The goal of this process is to help you use your body better. Proper use of the body facilitates ease and freedom of movement, lengthens the spine, supports your head on your neck without strain, and promotes coordination in the performance of everyday activities. Improper use of the body results in strained muscles and feeling stressed and fatigued.Through the Alexander Technique, many singers and other performers have learned to make their bodies move in such a way as to achieve their goals. Even if you are not a performer, learning how to use your body more effectively can relieve muscle tension, improve your posture, boost your self-confidence, and enhance your vitality. You can learn to do tasks as varied as working at a computer, lifting young children, or talking in front of a group with greater ease and less muscle strain.
