How do I learn the Alexander Technique?

Human beings are intricately but robustly designed to move efficiently with grace and poise.  Alexander discovered that the key to consciously managing our coordination lies in the relationship between the head, neck and back.  He called this the ‘primary control’.

You can observe this coordination in action in babies, small children and animals.  By the time we have reached adulthood however, most of us have interfered with our primary control.  We have set up a pattern of using ourselves which is so habitual that it feels normal, even though it may be highly inefficient and even lead to pain or injury.  An Alexander Technique teacher will teach you how to peel away those unhelpful habits so that you can regain your natural coordination.
