You've stumbled upon Expanding Awareness, a website run by me, Michael Ashcroft, that explores Alexander Technique and all the things it intersects with.
Alexander Technique is an awareness-based skill that helps people live with greater ease and freedom, a method to notice, expand and ultimately play within the space between stimulus and response.
This has an enormous range of applications.
While Alexander Technique is most commonly associated with physical performance — and it’s often used by actors, musicians and athletes for that reason — in reality the entire scope of human experience can be enhanced by being able to make new conscious choices in response to things that happen in our internal and external worlds.
Ultimately, Alexander Technique gives you conscious control over your awareness, and from there more agency in any aspect of your life, whether it’s how you move, how you think, how you perform, how you speak, how you relate to others or how you relate to yourself.
If you want to dive right in then I have an affordable, fully self-paced course, which I think might be the only one of its kind covering my awareness-first flavour of Alexander Technique anywhere on the Internet — about 750 people have joined already.
I also have a bunch of posts here on Expanding Awareness, so if you want to explore those then these are a good place to start.
And if you'd like to stay up to date with new material, you can sign up for the mailing list here.
