The Alexander Technique is probably best known to dancers, singers, musicians, and actors. These professions require a highly trained sense of how to maximize ease and efficiency in activity. In fact, Alexander lessons are a regular part of the curriculum at the Juilliard School in New York, the Yale School of Drama, as well as many other performing arts conservatories.
But the benefits of the Technique are not limited to performers. The Alexander Technique is studied by:
- Anyone who is physically uncomfortable due to stress, movement problems, old injuries, or poor self-image.
- Performing artists and teachers of the performing arts.
- Athletes and martial artists.
- Movement educators, dance therapists, physical and occupational therapists, counselors and psychologists.
- Anyone interested in improving breathing capacity and voice production.
- Anyone interested in the relationship between coordination and the process of learning.
- Anyone who wishes to regain more of their ease, flexibility, tone, strength, expressiveness, and grace.
