During your first appointment with Anita, she will gently and non-judgmentally help draw your attention to your own personal habits of posture or movement that might lead to the accumulation of tension. In each session, you will acquire tools to allow you to let go of limiting patterns and discover easier choices that lead to ease of movement and thought.
As you learn more about AT, you will experience a wide variety of benefits, both physical and psychological, which may include the following:
You! Virtually anyone can benefit from the Alexander Technique.
Do you have a hobby? Play a sport or instrument? Have a demanding job? Are you a parent? Have you experienced an injury? Is your life stressful or busy sometimes?

Those who carry the most stress and tension will see the biggest benefits in terms of pain reduction, but anyone who wants to feel comfortable and at ease in their own skin will love AT.
During an appointment, Anita will speak with you about your goals and how you are currently feeling. She will conduct your session through verbal feedback and hands-on guidance. Depending on your needs, your work may be stationary or mobile.
Many students feel relaxed and uplifted after a session. Gradually, through awareness and practice, you will learn to move beyond old habits and into a new way of being in the world.
