Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique can be helpful for voice and acting students. Through the Alexander Technique lessons, students learn to free their bodies of the tension, stress, and pain brought on by daily activities, habits, or injuries. The Alexander technique combines posture and movement patterns. Your body will be guided into new postures and ways to move while keeping your good posture, creating free and easy movements that are effortless and free from tension. Breathing patters will also coincide with your posture and movements. These techniques can be used to help with daily actives as well as with singing and acting.

During the Alexander Technique lessons Jeanette will be observing your posture and movement patterns. In addition to the visual information she will gather information about your posture and breathing in a very important way, by using her hands to feel your muscles and their movement patterns. She will gently place her hands on your neck, shoulders, back and so on.
