THE POISE PROJECT: alexander technique for the 21st century


Our Mission is maintaining poise and personal growth throughout all stages and challenges of life through broader socioeconomic access to the principles of Alexander technique (AT).

Our Mission is realized through promotion of the profession, creation of programs adapted for specific populations and industries, and support of cutting edge research in the field.

We use a coordinated team approach uniting individuals who have benefited from AT, industry expert advocates, and AT professionals.
