About the Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique is an educational method that teaches skills you can apply to yourself to improve the way you feel and the way you carry out your daily activities. Performers in particular seek out the Alexander Technique because it not only helps with pain, but helps us move more efficiently, overcome performance-related anxiety, and easily drop into an “in the moment” mode of performing.
Alexander Technique students report feeling lighter, freer, calmer, and more poised. Everyone can enjoy these benefits, whether you’re a performer or not.
In addition to its physiologic and musculoskeletal benefits, the Alexander Technique is extremely helpful in relieving the psychological states of depression and anxiety that so often accompany chronic pain and disease.
Working with Paige in the Alexander technique has changed so much of what I do as a performer and a person. I have a much wider and relaxed range with my physical self, which translates to a more dynamic and efficient use of my physicality and vocals in performance.
I’ve been studying the Alexander Technique with Paige McKinney for over a year and half and without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who might be curious to find out more about the Technique.
