The Alexander Technique aims to promote an improvement in the functionality of our bodies. Another way of thinking about this is that through the Alexander Technique we learn to re-educate ourselves proprioceptively and re-pattern our alignment pathways for more efficient movement.
The learning centers around identifying movement patterns that produce pressure and imbalance on your musculoskeletal system, which in turn disrupts your ability to move comfortably, affecting your breathing, articulation, digestion, mental attitude and emotional equilibrium. In these individualized lessons, a teacher uses gentle hands-on work to re-educate new anatomical awareness and proprioception. “New directions” for movement are taught as a way to continue this practice in your daily life.
