The Alexander Technique
Private Lessons and Group Workshops
Dawn Karlovsky MFA, M.AmSAT
The Alexander Technique is regarded as a study of “human reaction”, a way to help us to understand how our use, structure, and functioning are completely integrated. F.M. Alexander’s method of re-education allows us to examine how our general self-use influences our overall coordination which affects everything we do.
Private lessons in the Alexander Technique involve one-to-one teaching that uses gentle touch to guide, instruct, and to increase awareness and gauge the amount of tension generally used in daily life.
Benefits to studying the Alexander Technique allow for:
improved ease and efficiency of movement
improved balance and postural support
improved breathing and vocal production
enhanced performance for dancers, singers, actors, and musicians,
release of habitual use of tension and more!
Workshops for groups are also available.
