Alexander Technique – Re-education in Body Awareness
What is the Alexander Technique?
Developed over a hundred years ago by F. M. Alexander, the Alexander Technique (AT) is a hands-on approach to understanding human alignment. Applying AT principles leads to more reliable sensory perception, body awareness, and movement that is easier, more dynamic and much more enjoyable. The Alexander Technique is an educational process which teaches the student how to identify and undo poor and inefficient habits that may be causing stress and fatigue.

"Under Robbin's magic hands I felt like I grew several inches, got lighter and more balanced, and was able to move with a new ease and grace. As a singer, I find Alexander Technique enormously liberating, and Robbin is articulate and inspired, both in her verbal and her manual guidance.”
— Elise Witt, singer-songwriter
