Spirituality and The Alexander Technique

One of the core elements of the technique is known as inhibition. This is not suppression but simply a moment of conscious and deliberate stillness or a ‘neutral gear’ which brings about respite from habitual reaction or over-reaction.

Within this place of stillness the following qualities have room to arise:

  • spaciousness
  • being in the present moment
  • inner and outer awareness
  • reprieve from anxiety
  • emerging clarity
  • choice
  • appropriate action

All of these are of great relevance for many other conditions such as:

  • chronic illness or disability
  • trauma/shock
  • stress
  • chronic pain
