The Alexander Technique is an established educational method used globally for more than 100 years. It teaches you how to unlearn and change unwanted motor habits in a simple and practical way, as it showcases how to put the right amount of effort into a particular activity and save energy with ease and freedom. Ultimately, the Alexander Technique is the retraining of the body and mind; it is more than just a series of exercises or treatments. It is a method that helps you discover a new balance in your body, releasing useless tension in your muscles and joints and it improves your coordination when you are sitting, lying down, standing up, walking.
This psychosomatic application is adaptable to all activities and needs. It can tremendously help people working in the arts, sports and business, as it trains you to use your body alignment to the optimum degree without stress. Additionally, people with anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and those recovering from injury or with chronic illnesses and ailments can also benefit greatly from the Alexander Technique, as they learn how to regain stability and function with effortless balance. Through group or private lessons, you are taught kinetic concepts that help build your mindful awareness with benefits that extend beyond the lesson into your everyday life.

I have been part of Alexander Technique sessions with George and they are exceptional. Calm, methodical, and supportive, he transports to the mind and body all the energy that is needed so we can release the tension we experience throughout the day. An exceptional and thorough approach that introduces us smoothly into a method of bodily self-control- very important and useful!

What the Alexander Technique teachers claim is correct- the Alexander Technique is indeed the manual we wish we had been given at birth of how to use our body to the optimum degree. Thank you Georgios for showing me what it is like to move and function without pain!

I inquired about the technique, as I am interested in changing perspectives in what I have studied and embodied with dedication for the last 11 years. Our lessons gave me a new way of movement that focuses on the head, and gives equal importance to moving consciously. Everything is similar, yet so different now!
