Performance

The Alexander Technique is an educative process that transforms itself into a practice. Artists and performers know it and use it to overcome and prevent injury, and to support their highest levels of performance.

If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, you might find the Alexander Technique and the lessons I offer a very helpful tool to adjust to this new component of your life. The learning and application of Alexander Technique skills can help you with :

  • emotional symptoms : apathy, feelings of helplessness, loss of confidence and depression - which may all affect a person's ability to face the daily challenges imposed by Parkinson's disease in daily life.
  • general physical symptoms : sleep disturbances, tiredness, rigidity in postural tone (which appears as stooped posture), compromised gait and sense of balance
  • fine motor skills : smoothness of movement in specific actions (walking, speaking , etc), initiating movement

‘Before I studied in London I had not known about the Alexander Technique. I can thank the Royal Academy of Music for helping me discover the Technique and all its benefits. I had lessons for eighteen months and I feel that I changed a lot very positively. I think now that the Alexander Technique is one of the greatest things for a musician — and not only for your playing but also for your whole life.’

- Zsuzsa Vamosi-Nagy, flute alumna

Your teacher, through senses-varied cues
(visual, tactile, verbal, kinaesthetic) will help you to gain knowledge and understanding of your own coordination and of our natural functioning as human beings. You will learn how to recognize and overcome patterns of tightening that impede and interfere with its effortlessly efficient design. The mundane settings of our explorations during the lessons will help you to bridge this learning into your own life. You will be on your way to learn a powerful, universal skill, applicable to all of life’s endeavours.

Testimonial

“Camille greets you as both a student and as a complete dynamic organism, not as a patient with a singular issue to 'cure'. I was at first interested in addressing a nagging neck issue, but with Camille's assistance I came to realize that how I was using my body was the source of the problems.”
- Chris A.

Testimonial

“Camille's practical exercises, knowledge, and patience towards all my questions and doubts won me over. She helped me untangle bad movement habits and I still think of the cues she gave me. She changed my posture, literally and figuratively!”
