Stress

When you are under stress the Alexander Technique can provide effective relief.

Too much pressure can make you ill; work, relationships, money troubles, commuting, health problems, exams, job interviews, can all have a combined effect on the body and mind.

To effectively combat stress, we need to address the physical, mental and emotional causes. The Alexander Technique helps us to control the way we respond to life and to return to a balanced state of body and mind.

Feeling grounded, mindful and calm will help you manage any stressful event, such as an interview, audition or exam, with more confidence and control.

Learning to manage stress with the Alexander Technique will also:

  • improve breathing
  • promote general relaxation
  • enhance mental clarity
  • help you avoid feeling overwhelmed
  • improve sleep
  • help you manage anger
  • reduce nervousness
  • prevent unduly excited fear responses

 

 

The Alexander Technique is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life.

The Alexander Technique helped me release tension which I was previously unaware that I had, in particular when standing at the tee. In the past my mind would have been elsewhere and my thoughts made me more tense. Applying the Technique I discovered relaxing the jaw, feeling my socks in my shoes, sensing the ground beneath my feet and just being there really helped. My drive distance improved and I cut 5 shots in one game. I now play much more relaxed by applying these principles and am more aware of the moment and less focused on the outcome (what Alexander Technique teachers call end-gaining) and my drive distances have improved through being more relaxed and having greater freedom of movement.
