"Alexander Technique teaching is pragmatic and highly individualised. It focuses on the balance of the entire organism by taking into account the physical, the psychological and the emotional. I highly recommend taking lessons!"

HISTORY

F.M.Alexander (1869-1955) developed his teaching work for almost 60 years, mainly in London. The starting point for his research were problems in the use of his voice. The purpose of Alexander's teaching was to promote optimal use of the self, so that it supports the psychophysical whole and prevents various ailments. Alexander's central ideas were the importance of developing awareness and the individual's responsibility in making choices. The work emphasized comprehensiveness, pragmatism and practicality.
