The Alexander Technique and Your Athletic Performance

Effortless Sports

"The Alexander Technique stresses unification in an era of greater and greater medical specialization. Its educational system teaches people how to best use their bodies in ordinary action to avoid unnecessary stress and pain..."

Your Fitness Program

The Alexander Technique is the ideal starting point for fitness programs. Exercise builds on existing postural habits and patterns of movement. If you are poorly coordinated when you exercise, you risk injury. With all your good intentions, you may end up worse off than before.

The Alexander Technique will leave you with a sense of lightness and a sense of effortlessness in movement. This will translate into a workout that leaves you energized.

Your Athletic Performance

The Alexander Technique remains an invaluable source of knowledge for understanding the secrets of peak performance and many chronic unresolved health problems. By identifying habits, mental and physical, which lead to excess tension, the Alexander Technique can return its students to fluidity and grace in movement and performance. This is our natural state, one of relaxed energy and easy poise.
