Introducing Melissa Brown

Initially I was interested in Alexander Technique to become a better dancer. I achieved that goal! I became more coordinated and flexible; my posture improved tremendously; and I moved with more ease and freedom.

However, I soon discovered that the practice went far deeper than just being able to dance better.
I felt better! I was more centered both physically and emotionally. As a Type-A personality, this was life-changing.

Now, I love helping people use Alexander Technique to move better, address pain, improve posture, and reduce stress. I also work with actors and am continually amazed at how they become more present in performance as they develop the skills they need to undo tension and find poise.

I teach private lessons, group classes and workshops both in-person and online.


I look forward to sharing this wonderful work with you.

The Benefits of Alexander Technique

Improve posture and mobility, address pain and reduce stress.

What distinguishes Alexander Technique from other modalities is that it is a mind/body practice so in addition to achieving relief from physical problems and discomfort, people experience an overall sense of well-being. They report that they not only feel better in their bodies, but as they release tension and center themselves, they also feel calmer and easier.

Unique Benefits for Actors

Overcome performance anxiety, be grounded and present on stage.

Make your performances compelling and authentic. Discover how to release tension, stop overthinking and be present-in-the-moment.

Enhance your body awareness.

Do you bring your own poor postural habits to your characters without knowing it? Alexander technique will help you increase your body awareness and improve your posture so that won't happen. In fact, you will be able to find a healthy, neutral alignment –a blank canvas for creating your characters specific physicality.
