• ..."The knots in our muscles keep our teeth clenched our jaws locked our legs crossed our shoulder stooped our backs bent, our chests from inhaling and exhaling the full sweetness of life"...

    Living in today’s world, we spend much of our time on a computer or checking our Smartphone for emails and texts. This means we spend much of our time looking down, rather than straight ahead, the way our vertebrae were designed to support our heads.
     
    Your head weighs about 10 lbs, and by dropping your neck to look at a mobile device all that weight pulls on the muscles in your neck and shoulders, causing strain and harmful tension. It is the equivalent of dangling a heavy shopping bag off the end of your neck.
     
    Keeping our head bent down for long periods puts continual strain on the large neck muscles, which are meant to normally be lax. In contrast, the small neck muscles (which are meant to hold up your neck vertebrae) are not being used and are therefore lax.


    The result is that our vertebrae lose their support, so that you end up not only with neck stiffness or pain, but possibly some degeneration in our cervical spine, and prolonged pain.
    Learning the Alexander Technique allows you to use your body with better coordination and poise, avoiding collapsing and compressing the spine.

  • Empowering You to Control Stress and Anxiety

    Emotion (Latin – emovere) is the body’s reaction to your thoughts. It is the reflection of the mind on the body. Amy Cuddy, a Harvard professor and social psychologist, has published research that suggests a link between body poise and well-being.


    According to Cuddy, “adopting expansive postures causes people to feel more powerful”. Other professors have written about how a sense of power produces various effects on a person’s thoughts, emotions and physical condition.
    The Alexander Technique allows practitioners to create gaps in their streams of thought, while promoting natural and balanced bodily coordination. Instead of assuming a startled mindset and posture, you will react to stressful situations with grace and ease.
