Alexander Technique Six Week Class
For over 120 years, performing artists have used the Alexander Technique to improve their performance.
The Technique helps people to become aware of subconscious habitual reaction and patterns that interfere with one's functioning, and transforms those habits to improve functioning. Participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of the Alexander Technique and learn how to practice them in daily life.
Performers have used this innovative method to improve breathing and vocal production, to have more freedom in movement, greater emotional availability and to enhance performance. The Technique also benefits people with chronic pain and respiratory issues like asthma and emphysema. Others have found it to be a way to reduce stress and useful with personal growth and development.
This six week class meets for 90 minutes once a week and there will be three 30 minute individual lessons for each participant outside of class time.
The class is open to everyone!
"With the best intentions, the job of acting can become a display of accumulated bad habits, trapped instincts and blocked energies. Working with Tom and the Alexander Technique to untangle the wires has given me sightings of another way. Mind and body, work and life together. Real imaginative freedom."
-Alan Rickman, Actor
