What is the Alexander Technique and who was F.M. Alexander? 

The Alexander Technique is the name given to the work of Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955).

Today Alexander’s Technique is taught to individuals and groups of people of all ages and walks of life. It can be used to help improve your general health, well being, functioning and performance. 

F.M.Alexander was a reciter and actor, who, at the beginning of a successful career, found himself struggling with hoarseness and eventually loss of voice while performing. He sought help from doctors and voice coaches, but no one was able to find the cause of his problem.

As his problem did not seem to be a medical one, and only troubled him during his performances, he concluded that his loss of voice must be caused by something he was doing to himself whilst performing.

Determined to find a cure for his problem, he began a long process of self-examination and experimentation, which led to some amazing discoveries. These discoveries enabled him to develop processes which he could use to stop the unconscious and habitual patterns of thinking and movement that had been causing his problem.

He began to share his discoveries with those experiencing similar difficulties, and quickly realised his techniques were applicable to many other conditions which had previously had no cure.

In 1904 he left Melbourne and moved to London, where he soon established a successful practice, and worked with many well known figures of the time. These included George Bernard Shaw and Aldous Huxley.


Alexander started his first teacher training course in 1930, continuing this work until his death. His work was carried on by his students, and today is taught around the world.


During his lifetime F.M. Alexander wrote four books illustrating and explaining his work:

Man’s Supreme Inheritance (1910)

Constructive Conscious Control of the Individual (1923)

The Use of the Self (1932)

The Universal Constant in Living (1941)
