Participating in a sport when you have habits of misuse of your body is like driving a car with the emergency brake on all the time. Each of these habits holds you back in some way, preventing you from reaching your full potential. These habits manifest themselves in excessive tension in inappropriate places, and can lead to pain and discomfort or even injury.

Lessons in the Alexander Technique teach people how to observe and eliminate their own unique habits of misuse. Learning instead how to use your body in the most efficient and coordinated way possible is necessary in order to be the best athlete you can be, reaching your full potential and getting the most out of your exercise while avoiding injury.
