Alexander Technique

Mindful movement, freedom in breathing, intelligent postural support

The Alexander Technique can help you reduce strain on your body and your being in the performance of everyday tasks as well as of special skills.

“I will forever be grateful for the powerful teachings of Michael and Léonie at Freedom in Action. You have helped me to give myself my life back! Learning the Alexander Technique has been a truly transformational experience and has put the power of healing back within ME! Gone are the daily, anxiety-producing headaches that plagued me for years and the dependence on ibuprofen for relief. Gone is my fear that I will someday be an old lady who can barely move and cannot pick up my grandchildren. Gone is the frustration of powerlessness to eliminate or  minimize the back, hip, and buttock pains.”
