Welcome to Forward and Up!

The Alexander Technique is a system of postural re-education that increases physical lightness and ease of movement by making the student aware of their habits and giving them the tools to change those habits for the better.

The Technique is best known to those in the performing arts (dancers, actors, musicians, etc.), but it is applicable to everyone regardless of occupation. The philosophy it teaches and the skills it develops can be equally useful whether you apply them to dancing, running, sitting at a computer, solving math problems, public speaking, or swinging on a trapeze. The ability to get out of your own way is a skill that is valuable in all aspects of life.
