- "The Alexander Technique is worth every moment it asks, and those once committed to it may well
find that they cannot do without it. It is an enlargement of whatever life may be yours."
Robertson Davies, writer
- "The Alexander Technique makes sense in that appropriate use of the body will lead to reduction
of various musculoskeletal disorders and remediate others which are established. No equipment is needed, just the skill
and training of the teacher. This technique is very worthwhile as a primary preventative therapy. It is especially
useful when posture is a key factor in back injuries while lifting and for workers who perform repetitive tasks while
Robert D. Greene, MD, Emergency Department, Norwalk Hospital, Norwalk, CT
- "The many obvious benefits that the technique afforded us as actors included minimized
tension, centeredness, vocal relaxation and responsiveness, mind/body connection, and about an inch and a half of
additional height. In addition, I have found in the ensuing years great benefits in my day-to-day living. By
balancing and neutralizing tensions, I've learned to relieve as well as to avoid the aches and pain caused by the
thousands of natural shocks that flesh is heir to."
Kevin Kline, actor
- "Together with improved physical and mental health I have found that the AT has brought
about a general heightening of consciousness on all levels."
Aldous Huxley, writer
- "Many types of underperformance and even ailments, both mental and physical, can be
alleviated by teaching the body musculature to function differently."
Scientist Nicolaas Tinbergen, discussing AT in his Nobel Prize Address
- "The Alexander Technique bears the same relation to education that education itself bears
to all other human activities."
John Dewey, philosopher
- "I relearned how to play the violin through studying the Technique. There were things I had
always been convinced that I was unable to do... As I learned to integrate the physical freedom and muscular
flexibility from the Alexander Technique with information I already had about how to play the violin, a potential
in me started coming out - like talent that had been held back."
Jorja Fleezanis, Concertmaster, Minnesota Orchestra
- "Of all the disciplines that form the actor training program, none is more vital, enriching
and transformative that the Alexander Technique."
Harold Stone, Associate Director, Theater Department, The Juilliard School
- "The Alexander Technique helps to integrate the individual dancer plus all the systems that
he or she has been exposed to... It is important to tell a student that there is a different way of moving free of
grit force, interruptions, [and] habitual patterns of tension."
Trisha Brown, choreographer
- "The Alexander Technique remains the best of the self-care strategies to prevent the sequel
of poor posture and poor breathing."
Harold Wise, MD, PC, New York, NY
