Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is over 100 years old, and is taught worldwide in college and university fine arts departments. Alexander Technique is a simple and practical method for improving ease and freedom of movement, balance, support and coordination. It is not a series of treatments or exercises, but rather a re-education of the mind and body. Alexander Technique teaches everyone how to become aware of and how to eliminate habits that interfere with fluid, free movement. Alexander Technique students learn how to pause and choose a better way of moving, thereby improving alignment, tone quality, breathing, and expressiveness.

Always with a student's permission, Alexander Technique teachers use spoken word and also sometimes very gently and lightly guides a student's head, torso, arms, legs, or feet in order to teach students how to move, breathe, sing, and perform with greater lightness and ease.

MaryJean completed 1600 hours of training to become a certified Alexander Technique Teacher. The training comprised a three-year teacher training school, private lessons, and many workshops. MaryJean returns to her training school as often as possible, to assist as a guest teaching-assistant, and she also attends workshops each year to develop her Alexander Technique teaching skills. MaryJean travels as often as possible to present Alexander Technique Workshops, which she often combines with her Body Mapping teaching skills.
