Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955) was an Australian actor who encountered a debilitating vocal issue that threatened his career. Unable to find a medical solution, he embarked on a journey of self-discovery to understand and overcome the underlying cause of his condition. He soon realized that his issue was related to his own unconscious habits, and he needed to unlearn them to improve his overall functioning. Through rigorous self-observation and experimentation, Alexander made a remarkable discovery that the way we use ourselves affects our overall day-to-day functioning.

The Alexander Technique has been widely used by individuals across different fields, including performing arts, athletics, education and healthcare, to improve their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Today, the Alexander Technique is recognized as an effective method for reducing physical and mental stress, improving posture and enhancing the overall quality of life.


Typically, the Alexander Technique is taught one-on-one, without the need for special clothing. As a teacher, I guide my students through everyday movements like sitting and standing, helping them identify and unlearn unhelpful habits and reactions.

Through gentle hands-on guidance and verbal instruction, students can release unconscious tension, resulting in increased energy, freedom of movement and emotional balance. This supports the innate self-healing capacities of the whole organism.

Over time deeply engrained unconscious habits will change and the reactions to life's challenges will do as well.
