Who was Alexander?
Frederik Matthias Alexander (1869-1955) actor and reciter, developed his technique through a process of self-examination with mirrors into his speaking habits, trying to determine the cause of his severe hoarseness after performing. One of his biggest findings was to prove how the head-neck-back relationship has a key role on our posture mechanism and tone regulation. He wrote many books but it is in The Use of the Self, in which he describes the evolution of the technique and how he could find a cure for himself.
How is an Alexander Technique lesson?
During the lessons we will use easy and known activities such as sitting, standing, walking, lying down in order to challenge your self-awareness. Through the contact of my hands and the sound of my voice I will support and give you feedback while guiding you to restore the natural balance between your head-neck-back and with your entire body.
This work will help you to improve your movement skills such as standing, sitting, walking, running, lifting, playing an instrument, hitting a ball, jumping, etc. You will become more aware of your body, feeling lighter, more coordinated in your movements, able to prevent bad posture; and allowing your breathing to become more conscious and free.
