The Alexander Technique for self development |
It allows me to rest my mind, leaves mental space, and therefore helps with decision making
and contemplation, and it improves my energy levels. It's the best method that I have met in

The Alexander Technique is profoundly calming.
In a stressful situation the Alexander technique helps to organise our perception of the choices available. Learning to
apply the Technique in this way builds quiet confidence and emotional intelligence.
The Alexander Technique has been found invaluable - often in conjunction with medical or psychotherapeutic treatment -
in dealing with:
- long term illness or disability
- serious disease or injury
- post-traumatic problems
- panic attacks
- chronic pain
The Alexander Technique makes a real difference to my often tense and busy life. Its thoughtful approach has made
me calmer, improved my concentration, and given me a clearer sense of my own well being. I am grateful for it.
From early childhood onward we make many decisions about how to be and how to live. These
decisions shape the habits of our bodies as well as our minds. The Alexander Technique's in-depth
approach helps us move out of unwanted habits and back into choice.
