The Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique is a self-care method that helps people take an active role in managing pain and tension. Alexander Technique is an educational process, one in which you develop a set of skills that may assist with pain relief and the reduction of injury. This technique also may be effective in helping with stress, chronic pain, back problems, or postural issues. Some students of this technique have found substantial and long-lasting benefits.
This five-week course is taught by Lisa Levinson, an AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique teacher and registered somatic movement therapist. The course offers the basic principles of Alexander Technique and its application to common everyday movements. Participants also will receive two half-hour private sessions.
