The pace and pressure of modern life can be unrelenting.
Our attention is constantly drawn outside of ourselves, into dealing with the external world. But what happens to us as we move through our day? How much do we consider and care for the element which is constant: ourselves?
Through schooling our attention, the Alexander Technique provides a way of reducing the strains on our bodies and our being, to optimize our performance of the everyday, as well as of special skills.
At FiA, we specialize in teaching you the Alexander Technique.
Freedom in Action for Individuals
Individual (one on one) attention.
Movement and postural patterns, your way of applying yourself in all your activities, may encompass compensatory maladaptations to earlier injuries, or other on-going (mal)adjustments, that generate strain and injury. It is precisely in unravelling these patterns that the Alexander Technique of neuromuscular re-education is invaluable.
Freedom in Action for the Workplace
Train your staff to avoid, reduce and manage workplace injury.
Back or neck pain, back injuries and even RSI all involve poor body use in daily activity. People unaware of their movement habits can misuse even the best ergonomic furniture, and misinterpret the best ergonomic advice. Hours, weeks and years of passive compression can accrue into sudden acute pain, or settle into nagging chronic discomfort, and predispose to expensive injury.
