The Alexander Technique is an excellent tool to re-educate

patterns of stress and imbalance in our posture.


       We live in a complex world, with so many moving pieces striving for balance -

    and our body and mind are no exception!


               Are you conscious of your posture?

               Does your movement feel free and graceful?

               Or, is chronic back and neck discomfort part of your daily experience?

               Do you breathe well, or do you experience your breath as shallow and restrictive?


              Do you:

               Sit for long hours?

               Professionally play an instrument, sing or dance?

               Involved in sports?

               Find it difficult to relax?


               Are you:

               Recuperating from surgery or illness?

               Stressed out at school or work?

               Interested in learning about and improving your posture?


               Many people come to the Alexander Technique due to discomfort or pain and the AT

               offers skills in re-educating unconscious and poor postural habits that can bring relief

               to long standing issues.


              The skills that I teach serve as proactive measures in self-care that include:

               Working with repetitive motion

               Freeing the body for better performance

               Becoming aware of and releasing old patterns held in the body

               Deepen into how breath is experienced & expressed

               Honoring the process of aging

               Work with soft & firm balls & a soft roller to move stuck stress in the connective tissue

               Restorative Movement & Dance supporting the body/mind/spirit

I began to study the Alexander Technique in NYC as a young dancer striving to build strength and technique. Little did I understand at that time, the profound impact that the AT would have in my life...

Interview with Kristin Maxwell - Is Posture the New Super Power?

Essential components of the continuum...


Movement can be expressed outwardly and inwardly in a myriad of ways. From the power of sport or dance to the subtlies of breathing and minute cellular action, the language of movement is vast and varied.


Balance is dynamic, ever changing and informing. I like to think of balance as a kind of “sixth sense” that informs our actions, our rest and our play.


Integration is intelligence and connectivity, a system that supports the whole structure. Integration provides a stable dynamic home that gives us the foundation for growth and fulfillment.


The experience of embodiment is a potent way to bring consciousness into the journey of our lives, and I offer a unique approach to the ebb and flow process that heals and balances.
