IMPROVEMENT OF PERFORMANCE
In Alexander Technique we focus on the proces. This approach may be the reason, why highly specialized and skilled people such as performers, sportsmen,, surgeons or pilots can improve their efficiency (be more precise, or more expressive with less effort and in shorter time), in some cases after just a few lessons.

ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE IS BENEFICIAL FOR ANY WORKER
A research study from 2012 published at Foment del Treball Nacional de Catalunya, Barcelona “Alexander Technique: Training for the self-management of workers to prevent musculoskeletal disorders” concludes, that lessons in Alexander Technique provided for employees at any kind of company or organisation give positive results. This counts for

  • those who sit in front of a schreen all day long (officeworkers, it-specialists, you name it)
  • those who make repetetive movements, (i.e. line work or musicians)
  • those who have hard physical work (i.e. gardeners, cleaning people)
  • those who are highly specialized (i.e. musicians, surgeons)

Companies report about less sick leaves and therefore less expences due to illness, and also better communication and better results.
