What is the Alexander Technique?


The Alexander Technique is a method of psycho-physical re-education.

It is a method which teaches us to become aware of and overcome harmful postural habits.

Over the years we become so accustomed to the ways in which we sit, stand, bend, walk, talk, use a mobile, computer…etc, we fail to realise that it is often these habitual activities that strain our body making us to waste energy or have pains.

However, these unwanted tense habits are not inherited; they grow with us from a very early age by imitating how people around us move.

Excess tension in your body can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms and it can interfere with your ability to perform in your everyday life.

The Alexander Technique analyses your body movement’s pattern and does not just treat the symptoms.
