Posture and Poise

The Alexander Technique teaches awareness of unnecessary tension and effort and how to optimize balance in sitting, standing, walking, even in high heels. With an integrated head/neck/back/breath relationship, the spine is elongated, and the limbs swing freely.  Confidence, comfort and balance affects state of mind and body!

Most people sit, stand and move with too much compression on various parts of the body, and not enough length in other parts. Especially the forward head position so common these days—the neck is poked forward and the head is compressed onto the spine, causing excess pressure on the spine, all the way to the lower back.

Most people think of posture as an external shape, but the Alexander Technique is more about Un-posturing—removing superficial holding, and coming into an authentic balance. Once you learn this ideal balance in sitting, standing and walking, you can apply that grace to all your movement and moods.

With this easier relationship to your body and mind, you let go of “putting on a front,” enhance your poise, and learn to function in stressful situations while keeping your cool.
