We believe that the Alexander Technique and the community of AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique teachers have much to offer both individuals and society as a whole. In a world in which it is easy to feel a loss of control -- of one’s health, one’s day and one’s life -- the Alexander Technique is a unique, established and scientifically validated way to take back control and re-assert our responsibility for these, and to bring reason to bear on the activities of daily living, to help us live better.
To that end, ATFA was founded in 2016 as a non-profit corporation in Oregon. Our bylaws state our primary purposes as follows:
a)To promote awareness of and accurate knowledge about the Alexander Technique among decision-makers, organizations, professionals, and the community at large, and among specific populations who may benefit from the Alexander Technique.
b)To promote knowledge of, and contribute to, science relating to the Alexander Technique.
To promote the ideas of the Alexander Technique as set down in FM Alexander’s four books, especially the concepts of the use of the self and unity of self, and how the Alexander Technique relates to education and society in general.Thank you for visiting our site and learning about our organization.
