The Alexander Technique is a pedagogical and empirical method used to improve the overall coordination of the human organism, which has a positive effect on the quality of all everyday movement and activities.
A.T. STUDIO, the first place of Alexander technique in Croatia, opened a new cabinet in 2022 under the slopes of Kozjak mountain in Kaštel Lukšić. Cabinet opening made possible, in addition to individual classes, to organize educations, courses, and workshops in which leading European teachers of the Alexander technique are going to participate.
I am pleased to welcome you to the A.T. STUDIO website!
For twenty years, I have been working with children and adults with neurological and other health-related problems. As I am a senior physiotherapist, senior occupational therapist, hippotherapist and Alexander Technique teacher, I can observe the problems that a child or an adult has from different angles.
Babies today do not lead the same life as in the past. They are often already exposed to stress in their mother’s womb, due to the mother’s fast way of life or sedentary habits, and other forced positions that mothers have to take in their professional lives.
Once upon a time, small children and children of all ages moved about much more than today. Today’s children spend more time sitting while watching cartoons or playing games on their mobile phones, tablets, or TV sets.
Partly because we were not able to use all our development movement potentials when we were children, partly because of bad habits and incorrect concepts that we learned during our childhood and youth, our congenitally good coordination was continuously disrupted while we were growing up.
When we teach children to swim, or when we work with special needs children in the sea, it is important to pay attention to primary control (the dynamic balance of the head in relation to the body) and to breathing, which must be as natural as possible.
We organise Alexander Technique courses with international teachers and teachers from Croatia. As part of group work, as well as individual work in a group, Alexander Technique teachers transfer their knowledge and experience through theoretical presentations and practical work.
