Alexander Technique Classes in Los Angeles
for Actors, Singers, and Directors

with Jean-Louis Rodrigue & Kristof Konrad

“Using the Alexander Technique empowers me and gives me a balanced sense of tension rather than relying on creating tension to do something in order to produce a sound or an act that is preconceived. I realized that I cannot control a set of circumstances outside of myself so I can go on a journey relying on the state of mind and body that the Alexander Technique gives me.
(Alan Rickman)

Class Description

We offer ongoing Alexander Technique classes throughout the year in Los Angeles, focusing on the application of the Alexander Technique to acting, movement, voice, and character development. Open to beginners as well as professional level actors and creatives, the classes are presented in a small group setting to give plenty of individual attention.

Jean-Louis and Kristof immediately create a level of trust and comfort in teaching this technique which allows all of us in the class to open up to the learning experience.
(JoBeth Williams)
