Feel more grounded, connected, and easy in your mind and body
Learning to calm your nervous system and engage your self-awareness both physically and mentally gives you more access to the inherent support of your body. You'll have more tools and more support when you find yourself in stressful, anxiety inducing situations.
Improve coordination and posture
Habitual tension pulls us down physically and emotionally. By taking the time to observe and undo your habits, you will notice a positive shift in your posture and the way you use your body. Being 'up' both physically and mentally becomes effortless when we let go of interfering habits.
Reduce risk of injury
The Alexander Technique will help you do activities in such a way that you won't overwork yourself and put unnecessary strain on your muscles, joints, and skeletal structure. This method of self care will also help ease and prevent chronic strain injuries that are a result of habitual tension.
Feel and look confident and comfortable in your skin
With better posture, coordination, and self awareness, looking and feeling confident comes naturally. No matter if you are getting up on stage, walking into a room full of people, or going on a date, you will have the tools to feel more at ease and confident.
Improve your communication skills
Working on skills of observation, gaining awareness of your habitual reactions, and giving yourself time to choose how to respond to situations makes the perfect recipe for improving your communication with others. Whether it be your boss, partner, friend, or family member, being a good listener and staying calm and open is essential for communicating compassionately and effectively.
Improve your breathing and vocal mechanisms
With a poised head-neck-back relationship our breathing functions as it is designed and creates a visceral massage for our internal organs. Without compression in the body, particularly the larynx, our coordination and breath facilitates vocal resonance.
Express yourself more freely
Letting go of tension allows for a free flow of self expression.
