We are now offering private lessons and workshops in The Alexander Technique!!
What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a method that works to change (movement) habits in our everyday activities. It is a simple and practical method for improving ease and freedom of movement, balance, support and coordination. The technique teaches the use of the appropriate amount of effort for a particular activity, giving you more energy for all your activities. It is not a series of treatments or exercises, but rather a reeducation of the mind and body. The Alexander Technique is a method which helps a person discover a new balance in the body by releasing unnecessary tension. It can be applied to sitting, lying down, standing, walking, lifting, and other daily activities..

Instructor Bio:Brett Hershey is a full-time, AMSAT certified Alexander Technique Instructor in the Los Angeles area. He discovered AT when debilitating back pain nearly halted his life in his twenties. In a quest for a cure, he began taking lessons and was amazed at the positive results.
Brett has now been studying AT for over 14 years, graduating from the ATI-LA teacher training in 2008. He thoroughly enjoys combining AT with Tai Chi & Qi Gong to help students from all walks of life to improve posture, reduce pain and increase performance by teaching them how to better use themselves.
He especially empathizes with students suffering from back and body pain, and as a former All-American collegiate athlete and current professional artist (writer, tango dancer, director), Brett also relates well to those pursuing athletic and artistic dreams.
