The Alexander Technique

Created by FM Alexander in the early 20th century, the Alexander Technique is now recognized worldwide as an educational process of improving coordination. Students discover the tools for unlearning poor habits of movement, restoring organic balance, ease and grace to everything that they do. There are YouTube videos and TED talks about the Alexander Technique online, but the Alexander Technique needs to be experienced firsthand to be fully understood.  Marieke is certified as an Alexander Technique teacher with Alexander Technique International (ATI).

Individual Lessons

During a lesson, Marieke will be observing your posture and movement patterns. She will also supplement the visual information in a very important way by using her hands, gently placing them on your neck, shoulders, back and so on. She is using her hands in order to get more refined information about your patterns of breathing and moving, and to guide you towards new movement patterns.
