With this low-impact technique, practitioners can realign their bodies for improved posture and increased range of motion. Students should wear casual attire to their lessons.

The Northern California Center for the Alexander Technique

Actor F. M. Alexander developed his famous technique in the 1890s as a means to alleviate his personal physical tension and prevent the frequent loss of his voice. He surmised that needless muscular tension throughout the body affects people's ability to perform even the most basic tasks, so he set to correct problem with specific movements and postures. Nearly a century later, George Lister began studying the technique in New York City as a solution to his chronic neck and back pain, and half a world away in London, Sally Munro harnessed the principles to enhance her singing career. Both soon became certified teachers of the technique, and now practice these principles with others at The Northern California Center for the Alexander Technique.

Through the Alexander Technique, the instructors attempt to teach people better ways of moving their bodies through better coordination of the musculoskeletal system. They work with students one at a time to show them how to recognize movement patterns that may be interfering with their bodies' natural poise with both hands-on and verbal instruction, assisting in the positioning of limbs or coaching someone through the lengthening of vertebrae in order to help them approach movements differently. Because of the focus on natural movements, many of the Alexander Technique's followers are athletes, singers, dancers, and musicians, each of whom use the principles to improve their breathing, increase their speed, and enhance the accuracy of their movements.

Customer Reviews

George gave the introductory class. He takes time to explain everything in detail and allows for you to ask questions pertaining to your specific field of study. Definitely recommend it!
