F.M. Alexander was born in Tasmania in 1869. He is noted for his detailed study of muscular tension, posture, movement and habit as they relate to how people use their body when performing everyday activities.

His research also revealed important insights into how poor posture can have detrimental effects on health and well-being.

By practical observation and experiment Alexander developed a system of re-education. Based on the principle of mindfulness, the Alexander Technique teaches us how to sit, stand, walk and perform all all activity with natural ease and efficiency.

Alexander’s discoveries have earned a well founded reputation for being highly effective in helping people enhance wellbeing and manage their lives more effectively. His method is now taught worldwide by teachers who have completed a three year full time training course in Alexander Technique. 

“This story of perceptiveness, of intelligence and persistence shown by a man without medical training, is one of the true epics of medical research and practice.” Professor Nikolaas Tinbergen, Nobel Prize-winner for Medicine and Physiology 1973, commenting on Alexander’s discoveries.
