A dedicated website of the Society of the Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).

"The Alexander Technique is taught worldwide in schools, colleges and universities, and is a powerful aid for children and young people. It reawakens natural poise so that minds and bodies can work in harmony to counter stress in our environment. It substitutes habitual tensions with a free-flowing coordination, and thus has a wide range of applications for young people."
