It is impossible to ignore the impact that a collapsed body will have on the success or failure of an activity that requires a nuanced use of the body.  Your body is the medium through which you perform and create  at the artistic and professional level. Alexander Technique is the study of how to organize the body so that it works the most efficiently  to meet your demands as an artist, allowing your body to give you the support you need for a long and  healthy career.
