I've very much enjoyed being a student of Sylvie for the last two months, and am genuinely shocked at the profound effect studying Alexander Technique has had for me.
Contrary to what is often thought, the Alexander Technique is not a therapy, neither does it deal with posture or position:
"The question is not one of correct position, but of correct co-ordination"*.
Thinking is central to the Alexander Technique and plays an important part in its teaching. The Alexander Technique re-trains students' thinking in such a way that this new way of thinking allows the body to move in a more natural way.
Taking up the Alexander Technique helps you move forward one step at a time whether you want:
- to move differently so that you
- to improve performance
- to feel less tired
By learning a new way of thinking, you will use less muscular effort in everything you do and hence will move more easily, efficiently and effectively.
So don't give up, the Alexander Technique can help you move forward and learn a process which is a simple and efficent solution to many problems and limitations we encounter, and very often create, in our lives.##########
