Relaxed posture and poise
The Alexander Technique improves the way your body looks and feels without you needing to strain to maintain a posture or position, or feeling you need to be pulling yourself into shape
The Alexander Technique offers a radical approach to improving movement, posture and poise, which involves letting go of tension and stress so that your body can naturally come into balance and alignment on its own — rather than trying to hold yourself in a set position.
The effect of lessons can be dramatic — often people gain a couple of centimetres in height as they 'let off the brakes' and allow their postural system to function as it should. They look taller, and more upright, open and aligned. They also feel more comfortable: having Alexander lessons has sometimes been compared to taking off a heavy rucksack you didn't even know you were carrying ! Everything feels lighter and easier in a way many of us have not experienced since we were children.
