Improved Performance for Artists, Athletes, Public Speakers, and Executives
The Alexander Technique is ideal for people who use their bodies in physically demanding ways, such as performing artists and athletes, as well as anyone who has to speak in front of an audience or handle high stress situations. Over time, the strain on the body caused by these activities can develop into physical injuries, vocal issues, or other problems that get in the way of achieving personal and professional goals. Lessons in the Alexander Technique can help to reduce and manage this strain and enable students to have long and healthy careers while at the same time reaching new levels of performance.
For actors, musicians, and dancers, the Technique empowers them to find increased utility with their essential instrument: their body. Benefits include improved breathing, increased control and fluidity of movement in performance, and growth in vocal tone and stage presence.
For athletes, the benefits come from learning to use their bodies more effectively and efficiently. This can hasten the healing of sports-related injuries and help prevent future problems. It can also can improve speed, endurance, and coordination.
