It's a skill set that you can learn to get yourself out of pain and perform at a higher level.
The Alexander Technique has simple steps that help you become aware of how you hold tension. Then, you'll learn to stop going into harmful patterns of tension.
identify tension ------> release
Reported results are: decreased pain & anxiety, improved mobility, a better voice and more confidence.
You literally learn how to stop compressing your muscles which leads to a decompression of your joints. That's why many people feel expansive after lessons.
Here are the steps:
Awareness of a particular physical or mental habit that puts you in pain or distress
Pause your initial action or reaction
Redirection into a new better choice for movement and/or thought
If you want to know what to expect in lessons go here, where I also give you a more in-depth history of the Technique.

Philosophy: we can develop into whomever we choose, change is always possible
One of the ways we can work together is on a role:
Through easy, fun to learn mind/movement activities, I worked with Christiane Seidel to master one of her most demanding roles yet--playing 10 different characters (9 males) in THEN SILENCE.
Together, we created physically expressive characters.
We freed Christiane of limiting thoughts - resulting in more rewarding & memorable performances.
Become the most attractive version of yourself.
Sometimes, pain gets in the way.
I'll help you prevent pain and stay at the top of your game so that you can pursue what you love.
