Alexander Technique helps us to become aware of how we respond to stimuli and it shows us how to let go of those responses that don’t serve us. For instance, many people get stuck in the fight-or-flight reflex (head thrust forward, shoulders rising up, neck and torso compressed). While that might benefit us in certain emergencies such as when a fist heads towards our face, it does not help us in 99% of life. Instead, it makes movement, thought and emotion more halting.
A person who moves awkwardly is more likely to think and feel awkwardly and to relate to others awkwardly. By contrast, somebody who’s poised will likely connect with others in a poised way. Just ask yourself — would I rather hang out with people filled with weird tension patterns or with those who are at ease?
I charge $100 per lesson (which usually lasts 45 minutes or longer). Call me at 323-528-5814 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am near Beverly Hills.
