Find Your Space

The Alexander Technique allows you to rediscover balance in your body and peace in your mind. If you struggle with stress, over-tensed muscles, back pain or you have problems with your voice or performance anxiety then this technique is for you!


Maria Górska-Saj
I am a certified Alexander Technique teacher. I teach you how to move, how to breathe and how to think without unnecessary effort and tension. During lessons I use my hands to gently help you to change your movement patterns and to teach you more natural ways of moving your body. If you learn more effective ways of movement, every day activities such as cooking, speaking, walking a dog, playing your musical instrument may become easier to perform. I can help you work with your emotions and thinking as they affect the way you move. I offer individual and group lessons.

An Alexander Technique lesson

Each lesson lasts 30-45 mins. I work with basic movement patterns like sitting, standing up, walking, reaching for an object, squatting, breathing etc. Each pupil can choose what they would like to explore in the lesson, according to their individual needs and interests. Musicians may choose to work with their instrument. Office workers may focus on discovering their movement patterns when sitting at a desk and working on a laptop. During the lesson you learn how to notice and understand your habitual over-tensed ways of moving and how to replace these with freer and more coordinated movements, to regain your poise and balance.
Part of the lesson may be working on a table in the position of ‘active rest’ (lying down on a table with bent knees and your head supported by books). This way of working helps to release unnecessary tension and to re-establish the spaciousness in your body.
