Alexander Technique for new Moms – Introductory post-natal workshop

The Alexander Technique can help address the many changes a mother must make during pregnancy, through childbirth and into caring for her new baby.  It is a practical method for improving ease and freedom of movement, balance, support and coordination.  Through classes you can look forward to an increase in energy, reduced pain and stress, and the overall ability to move more easily and gracefully.  You will learn to adapt to the many changes your body is adjusting to, find more physical support while carrying, lifting, and holding your baby, and create more ease and comfort while nursing.  Handling these new demands with improved ease can allow you to fully enjoy the rewards of parenting with support and relaxation.

Common discomforts

In the early postpartum periods, pregnancy hormones cause your ligaments and other connective tissues to lengthen, which decreases joint stability.  You are also managing a shift in your center of gravity, reducing neuromuscular coordination and balance, leaving you more vulnerable to injury.  As you learn to apply principles from the Alexander Technique, you can enjoy a new sense of support and balance, helping you to:


  • Improve posture and alignment
  • Prevent injury and relieve chronic pain
  • Manage stress more effectively
  • Reduce muscular tension
  • Increase range of motion, breathing capacity and overall energy
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Expand self-awareness
  • Improve and sustain your health
