What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a way of enhancing awareness in activity.  Through the support of ones own constructive thinking and the hands and experience of a teacher, a student has the opportunity to become more aware of what is going on in their body and mind in activity, and with that awareness make informed choices about how they are going about their activities.  Alexander Technique can also support the unwinding of unneeded patterns of tension through constructive thinking and constructive rest.

 

Ways of Teaching

Emmalee offers in person or online lessons to groups and individuals.  Alexander Technique is traditionally taught one on one and involves exploring awareness, thought, and movement in low stakes activities like getting in and out of a chair, walking, standing and laying down as well as work in specialized activities like playing an instrument, dancing, writing, computer work, or gardening to list a few.

In person lessons generally include light touch from a teacher that helps to enhance awareness of ones body in space, bring into clearer focus ones structure, and support the unwinding of unneeded patterns of tension.
