Cultivate agility and good posture.
Sitting, standing and moving around with more ease
We often use too much effort when we try to be upright.
Especially when standing and sitting.
In fact, we "hold" ourselves up, instead of letting the natural uprightness just happen. We involuntarily interfere with the free interplay of head, neck, and trunk. This, in turn, often leads to more posture-related problems or even pain.
Being upright can be almost effortless, though. If we restore a natural coordination and let the spine and the leg bones do all the work. True balance requires very little muscle strength.
We all had this effortless uprightness as children, we just "unlearned" it over time.
I will show you how to regain this beautiful state of being upright, effortlessly!

What I find inspiring and exciting
Since 1998, the Alexander Technique has been a steady companion in my life. What's more, as it was on the very first day, I am still excited and fascinated by the fact that the Alexander Technique is a thoroughly practical and pragmatic method. It does not require any extensive theoretical knowledge, is free from ideology, dogma, or even extra exercises. It is a method solely based on experimenting, honest assessments and making (new) experiences.
The most remarkable aspect of the AT is that it can be applied to every activity and every topic at any given moment. And one can directly experience the positive and freeing effects in these specific situations and activities.
Personally, for me, as a radio announcer for the Bavarian Public Radio (BR), the Alexander Technique offers constant support and inspiration for me, so that I can reliably trust my voice, and be present and expressive in front of the microphone.
The technique is also firmly integrated into other situations of my daily life. Be it while working at the computer, doing housework or riding my bicycle, motorcycle or driving in a car.
Last, but certainly not least, it makes me especially happy that human interactions and relationships have improved greatly – I'm in better contact both with myself and with my counterpart. And, as a result, I experience far fewer conflicts and arguments. I'm calmer and get to experience more harmony and joy in my life.
I invite you to explore and learn this wonderful, practical technique with me!
