The Learning Process
The Alexander Technique is about movement, and for movement - its point of reference is the quality of ease that we observe in great performers and full of life kids, the world over. It is a method of neuromuscular re-education, that works directly with your critical thinking to teach you new ways of organizing movement in the field of gravity. This educational process will help you to recognize and overcome reactive, habitual limitations in movement.
"There is only one way of saying what the work is and what we are doing. We are giving Nature her opportunity. This is a definition allowing for change and growth.”
- F.M. Alexander
Experience the ease of movement, balance and freedom that comes from working with gravity instead of against it
As you go along, among others concepts, you will learn about…
unity of oneself
stimulus and response
awareness and observation
and lengthening up!
This process unfolds within the context of lessons, taught one on one. In each lesson, the student learns how to better negotiate gravity by making conscious choices that promote balance and ease of movement.
“Any man could, if he were so inclined, be the sculptor of his own brain.”
- Santiago Ramón y Cajal, pioneer of modern neuroscience
