"The Alexander Technique is taught worldwide in schools, colleges and universities, and is a powerful aid for children and young people. It reawakens natural poise so that minds and bodies can work in harmony to counter stress in our environment. It substitutes habitual tensions with a free-flowing coordination, and thus has a wide range of applications for young people. These include:
cultivating mental and emotional health
enabling resilience and self-confidence
developing a balanced approach to academic work
enhancing performance in sport, music and public speaking
dealing with neck, shoulder and back pain
promoting social skills"
