ALEXANDER
TECHNIQUE
WHAT IS THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE?
F. M. Alexander (1869-1955) was a pioneer in
mindbody education who developed a simple and
practical method for improving ease and freedom
of movement, balance, support, and flexibility. The
Alexander Technique is a common sense process
for identifying and preventing habits of thought
and movement that interfere with natural and
efficient coordination. This established technique
is as exciting and effective today as it was in
Alexander’s time. Discover how it can work for you!
WHO USES THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE?
The Technique is a powerful tool for selfimprovement. Musicians, dancers, and actors have
long turned to the Technique to improve their
skills in performance and prevent injury. But the
Technique is not just for the performing artist.
An increasingly diverse population—from worldclass athletes to health care providers, computer
operators to office managers, educators to their
students—has experienced the benefits of this
remarkable work. No matter what you do, the
Alexander Technique can help you do it better.
THE COURSE
The course is designed to accommodate both the
novice and the more experienced student. Large
and small group experiences provide variety and
interest and allow our diverse group of participants
to learn from each other. Activities classes give
participants the opportunity to apply the principles
of Alexander’s work in a multitude of ways, be
it in T’ai Chi, playing the violin, or maximizing
efficient body use at the computer. Each student
will receive at least one individual session with one
of the teachers, and opportunities for further oneto-one intensive training are available.
C
ome join us in beautiful Boulder, Colorado for
a week of study and discovery as we learn and
apply Alexander’s unique method of mindbody education. The resulting poise, grace, and ease of
movement will delight and energize you as you sit, walk,
play, or work with newfound awareness.

THE FACULTY
Our certified teachers of the Alexander Technique
draw on many years of teaching experience and their
own unique backgrounds in dance, martial arts, music,
somatic education, and yoga. As you study the Technique
during the course, they will help you recognize how your
movement habits can interfere with your mind-body
connection, and will guide you as you discover how to
monitor and eliminate unnecessary effort in both your
daily and specialized activities.

Washington DC, area, working with a diverse population

Alexander Technique. He carries a certification to teach
