The Principles


The precepts and practices of this work – coordination in movement, release of excessive muscular effort, a calming of the nervous system, thinking in activity – are natural outgrowths of a set of principles that are core to the Alexander Technique.  It is scientific in approach.  These operational ideas are so fundamental to human functioning that we barely recognize them, and yet they form the basis of our daily lives.  Its essential principles are derived from the study of both human behavior and the human condition.

Studying the Alexander Technique is a dynamic exchange between the teacher and her students.  Together we produce healthful changes in the students’ “psycho-physical” presence.
