Alexander Technique lessons target unconscious, unnecessary, and unwanted effort. Being able to choose your effort results in greater relaxation and coordination, more energy, a sense of well-being and lightness, and improves posture, eyesight, digestion, breathing, and more.
In order to unlearn the unconscious habits that lead to overeffort, one-on-one work is best. In sessions customized to your needs, I’ll work with you, using a combination of gentle hands-on and verbal instructions, guiding you through the basic building blocks of movement (sitting, standing, lifting an arm, lying down, etc.)
Working on these simple, familiar movements empowers you to notice and change undesirable physical and mental habits in everyday life, no matter how complex the activity. From chronic pain to the performing arts, from office workers to athletes: I can help you recognize what you're doing that causes you pain, and teach you how to stop it. Permanently.
