In essence, the Alexander Technique helps you use your body in the best possible way using mind awareness and your nervous system to change habitual patterns that are creating your chronic tension or pain. We all know that good posture is key, yet we have inherited some misconceptions around movement and posture from the founder of Modern Fitness.
The thing is, the best way to be in your body for effortless good posture has nothing to do with the common positioning of your body in the assumed “correct posture”. It is not about the activities you do or do not do.
Rather, it has to do with “how you use your body” whatever you may be doing. It is about functioning in a state of expansion which naturally results in ease of movement, natural good posture, good coordination and balance. It is about responding to life rather than reacting to it.
When you learn to not interfere with the optimal functioning of your body intelligence, you can reclaim the ease in your movements, the poise in your posture and you experience positive changes in how you behave. It is not about perfection but right intention in action.
It creates expanded awareness and new possibilities in all aspects of your life.
