What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a way of bringing ourselves back to our natural state-of-being, the way our bodies were designed to function. Throughout the chaos of daily life we develop habits and increased tension that can impact our use and even create pain. The Alexander Technique strives to free the tension and allow for ease and freedom in your body.
To sum it up, Alexander Technique is a deep study of how we do what we do and who we think we need to be while we do it.
Sarah has just completed her Alexander Technique certification through the Boston Conservatory at Berklee under the training of Debi Adams. She has also been influenced by the teachings of Tommy Thompson, Bob Lada, Eliza Malouk, and Jamee Culbertson.
Her teaching focuses on a student-centered approach, allowing the students to be in the driver seat for what is important for them. We can work on your instrument; daily activities such as sitting, standing, walking; computer/phone usage, putting on make-up, etc. Whatever activity you would like to find more ease in! Alexander Technique can be for everyone-- from performers, to massage therapists, to cosmetologists, to accountants, to construction workers! Anyone can find a benefit to this work.
Our lives have all changed drastically during COVID-19. A busy hustle-bustle life is now spent mostly working from home. Our "normal" of working at a desk in our office has now become working on the couch in our pajamas. I'm here to help you to continue to be mindful and maintaining your best use with suggestions for furniture, optimal position, best set-ups, and tools to use to make working from home as comfortable and efficient as possible.
Interested in sharing Alexander Technique principles in your office or workplace? Want your actors/singers/dancers to have the skills to be mindful during a performance? Want your students to have better use in the classroom? I have experience teaching large group Alexander Technique and would love to work with you to come up with a plan that best suits you.
Sarah has given group AT classes to Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra and Boston City Singers.
