Philosophy and Comments        

The Alexander Technique enables you to release muscular tension and reduce compression. As you study the Technique, you will begin to recognize inefficient postural habits and learn how to find a greater physical integration. You learn to capitalize on your body's natural internal support system, and discover your capacity for effortless movement. The Alexander Technique is an intelligent way to solve body problems. It is not a series of procedures or excercises, but simple principles that you learn to apply to whatever you do. During private lessons, I will analyze your movement, guide you with a specialized, light touch to release tight muscles and joints. As you apply Alexander's principles to a task, sport or act, you find greater pleasure in the everyday and return to the activities you love. As you improve posture and reduce back and neck pain, you achieve a newfound body harmony.
