This course introduces and offers practical experience with the Alexander Technique. The Technique helps performers, people who suffer from anxiety, and people who wish for a more fluid and friendly connection with everyday movement. It helps us to improve our public speaking, our musical and/or athletic performance, and to find a calmer more centered approach to the activities of everyday life.
 
The Technique has long been taught in universities, conservatories, and drama schools, and has been studied by notable writers, scholars, and philosophers for over 100 years. People in all walks of life apply the Technique to improve performance and manage stress.
