"The Alexander Technique teaches you how to bring more practical intelligence into what you are already doing. How to eliminate stereotyped responses. How to deal with habit and change. It leaves you free to choose your own goal but gives you a better use of yourself while you work towards it."

Prof. Frank Pierce Jones


Alexander Technique in Education


"Alexander learned by observation and experiment upon himself, in the strictest scientific method, that the mechanism that determines the character of all reflex action lies in the reflexes governing the relationship of the head to the neck, and the neck to the spinal column. When this 'primary control' or our core structure is functioning as it should, it is sensed as an integrating force that allows freedom throughout the organism."

Prof. John Dewey
