      In a nutshell, the Alexander Technique is an art in living.

      F. M. Alexander

      It addresses physical discomfort, strain, pain and injuries;

      refines coordination;

      improves your stamina for paying attention, being present and so, your power of observation;

      alleviates nervous and chronic tension in the preparation and performances of all kinds;

      enhances every aspect of life.

      There is no one who would not benefit from a course of lessons.

      Alexander did not give people who came to him a kind of medical treatment, but rather what he gave them was a re-education through a process developing their awareness about their behaviour.

      It gives the opportunity to be physically fit without being athletic.
