Alexander Technique For Posture, Poise And Performance (Communiversity – Fitness & Health) #4354
The Alexander Technique is a skill that anyone can learn to alleviate pain, reduce tension and optimize everyday functioning. It works by learning to prevent unconscious misuse of the body and by applying simple directions that promote proper use. By improving the quality of day-to-day activities such as standing, walking, sitting or bending, the Technique will help you feel calmer, lighter, looser and taller. Students find that as their overall ‘use’ improves, many common complaints such as back and neck pain, headaches, congestion, stiffness or fatigue decrease, and that energy, effectiveness and professional skills increase.
Alexander Technique lessons provide an opportunity to unwind and get to know how your body and mind work, as your instructor guides you through common activities such as sitting, bending and walking. Through tactile and verbal coaching, you will learn to let go of unnecessary tension and effort while gaining and experience of ease, effectiveness and composure. This sense of lightness will become your reference point as you learn to apply the principles of the technique on your own.
The Technique can benefit anyone who physical challenges or demanding conditions even if they feel fit and strong:
- People who spend prolonged time on their feet
- People recovering from injuries or surgery
- Professionals with desk jobs
- Pregnant women
- People with physical restrictions
- Adolescents and the elderly
The Technique is also widely used in professions where poise, balance and reduced tension are essential to performance:
- Actors and Dancers
- Singers and Musicians
- Athletes and Horse Riders
- Public Speakers and Presenters
