WHAT IS THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE?

The Alexander Technique (AT) is a transformative educational modality that helps you do what ever you do with more freedom and less tension. By working with a highly trained AT instructor, you can learn to release unwanted habitual psycho-physical and emotional patterns, reduce/eliminate strain, find better balance and coordination, boost energy and wellness, and enhance performance.

 

WHO TAKES OUR WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES?

We work with professional and aspiring performers, artists and entrepreneurs, athletes, CEO's and everyday folks. Anyone looking to live more freely and fully can take advantage of the Alexander Technique's unique principles to unlock their potential.

CLIENT  TESTIMONIALS

I find the Alexander Technique work that I've done with Nick is present in my body and my psyche, even when I'm not aware of it. But then, when I do become conscious of it, it just deepens and gets richer. It's helped me immensely over the years to release, relax, focus, and progress in both my creative, and non-creative modalities. Thanks Nick!!!
