The Alexander Technique is a means of self-development designed by stage actor Frederick Matthias Alexander. Finding no cure for his voice problems in late 19th century Australia, Alexander sought to catalogue his physical symptoms while reciting Shakespeare. The observations he made about his posture and breathing led to a programme of changes designed to relieve the physical and mental tension of everyday activities.
The Alexander Technique is a course of education rather than therapy, and is tailored to the needs of each individual. Just as we all learn differently, so we respond differently to outside stimuli. Our teachers will assess your needs based on the stresses and occupations you undertake every day, and offer gentle guidance to help you control reflexive actions.
