WHO STUDIES ALEXANDER?
Performing artist, athletes, martial artists, equestrians, body workers, counselors, physical therapists, anyone seeking ease and efficiency, and anyone who is physically uncomfortable or in pain due to tension, injury, movement patterns, stress, or trauma. Whether we do Pilates, drive nails into walls, work on the computer, bike, or play an instrument, we have the ability to move naturally. Naturalness leads to lightness, suppleness, strength and expressiveness. Often, however, we interfere with out innate natural movement. Instead of energy, joy, and grace we find stress, pain, and exhaustion. The application of the principles of FM Alexander enables us to redirect excess effort into useful energy. We learn how to transform tension into kinesthetic ease. By leveraging the supporting structure of our body fully, we can experience the pure pleasure of movement again, sensitive, powerful, and free.
