The Alexander Technique is a practical, self-care, educational method for improving awareness, movement and posture. It provides the tools to recognize our habits and patterns of responses so that we can change them. It emphasizes the relationship of the head, neck and back which is fundamental to improved use of the body.


Gaby Minnes Brandes, Ph.D., has been a certified instructor of the Alexander Technique since 1988. She is the owner of the Alexander Technique Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She was the founder and the co-director of the Vancouver School of the Alexander Technique, a CANSTAT certified teacher training program until the school closed in December 2018. Gaby is an active member of CANSTAT, STAT, AmSAT and ATI, and is currently a sponsor teacher and a board member of ATI.
