F.M. Alexander’s technique began as a method for freeing the breath and the voice, and evolved into a technique for freeing the whole person. It is a practical means of dealing powerfully with uncertainty, liberating us from haste and hesitation, so we can respond to life with full awareness and vitality.
Learning the Technique consists of developing skills to 1) pause before reacting, and 2) consciously direct attention to what is expensive and life-giving. Underlying these two aims is an awareness and experience of an ever-present current of dynamic coordination that supports well-being and consciousness.

“Michèle Drivon has a unique and powerful gift for teaching people about how their bodies work and how they can work even better. Her insight, conscious and integrous touch and her ability to communicate exactly what I needed to hear are brilliant. She knows the body in a way that is rare…. I always experience her as completely present, and that her goal is for me to be fully embodied in ways I never knew I could be. I feel taller, stronger and more confident after each session. I can’t recommend her enough if you want to experience the wonders of Alexander Technique with someone who is truly meant to be teaching it.”–Erin Ross, Get That You Matter founder and life coach
“I went into my Alexander Technique lessons with Michèle without knowing exactly what to expect. The changes I have noticed in my body in a short period of time are profound. My level of bodily awareness has brought on more comfort and ease in my daily activities, especially during my workday. Michèle not only has a fine tuned intuition of what I need, but also remains open and receptive in a calm and inviting manner. Her presence is relaxing and supporting. I am amazed to experience how subtle shifts in the way I carry myself can decrease my stress levels and increase my energy levels. Using the Alexander Technique, Michèle has helped me find more space in my body and distribute my weight more efficiently. My body is much happier!” –Nathan Oxenfeld, Integral Eyesight Improvement founder
