Postural habits narrow an actor's range. The Alexander Technique will equip you with the skills to move, breathe, and speak energetically and without strain. You’ll feel more present, emotionally available and genuine, and able to respond moment to moment in a scene. Finding a more natural neutral in your own body, you'll expand the range of potential characters that you can inhabit without your own physical habits getting in the way. The technique also helps with managing stage fright.
