Alexander Technique is a somatic practice which helps alleviate pain associated with habitual movement patterns. With training in Alexander Technique, you can move more mindfully through life, using only as much energy as is necessary so that you have some left over to do more of the things that you love.
Shellie Cash has helped countless people address a wide range of life challenges and realize significantly higher levels of performance and functioning through Alexander Technique for more than 20 years.
Shellie assists them in learning to “undo” habitual patterns of moving and thinking that limit performance, thereby allowing higher capability to emerge.
