Welcome to the study of the Alexander Technique

 

Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Kristof Konrad have been teaching the Alexander Technique in theater and film for the past 34 years.They are internationally known as two of the most sought after acting coaches and performance experts in the industry and they have worked with many of the top actors including Leonardo DiCaprio, Hilary Swank, Juliette Binoche, Josh Brolin, Chris Pine, Cobie Smulders and many others.

 

Benefits to be gained from study of the Alexander Technique include release of restrictions, increased coordination, effortless movement, fuller capacity of breath, improvement of the use of the voice and speech, increased tone in the musculature, and a stronger sense of presence. This physical well-being is important to the performer's imaginative growth and is essential to the development of his means of expression.

 

They offer group classes, private instruction, coaching on projects on and off set, and intensive workshops in Los Angeles, Hollywood, New York, Berlin, Toronto, Melbourne, and worldwide.
