The Alexander Technique can provide significant benefits for optimizing technique, preventing injuries, improving respiratory function and reducing anxiety across various performance disciplines.

Sports Performance:

  • Helps athletes develop better body awareness, coordination, and efficient movement patterns.

  • Can improve breathing coordination, flexibility, and injury prevention.

  • A study on golfers found the Alexander Technique improved weight transfer, spine angle, and overall technique (Ingham et al., 2018).

  • Research on rowers showed it enhanced breathing patterns and reduced excessive muscle tension (Ahmetović et al., 2015).

Music Performance:

  • Teaches musicians how to minimize excessive tension and improve breathing and posture while playing.

  • Studies show it can increase respiratory function and reduce performance anxiety in musicians (Valentine et al., 1995; Howell, 2016).

  • Helps prevent repetitive strain injuries common in instrumentalists (Polatin et al., 1997).


  • Improves body awareness, presence, and vocal projection for actors.

  • Can help actors develop character physicality and prevent muscle tension/strain.

  • A study found the Alexander Technique enhanced acting skills like responsiveness and being "in the moment" (Valentine et al., 1995).

  • Used by many prominent actors like Patrick Stewart to improve stage presence.

General Benefits for Performers:

  • Promotes mental calmness, focus and preventing excessive muscle tension or 'choking'.

  • Teaches performers how to efficiently use their body with minimal strain.

  • Improves dynamic balance, coordination and graceful movement.
