FM Alexander's 150th Birthday Fundraiser for The Poise Project

We are doing a birthday fundraiser leading up to FM Alexander's 150th Birthday to benefit The Poise Project®.

January 20, 2019 will be FM Alexander's 150th Birthday.

Yet Alexander technique and the principles that he identified are still not well known to the general public. 

The Poise Project is a US nonprofit with the mission of making Alexander technique principles universally accessible across broad socioeconomic groups in order to give everyone the ability to have these valuable skills for lifelong improvement and personal growth throughout all stages and challenges of life.

Since it's incorporation in May 2016, The Poise Project has used a consistent, creative, multi-level approach for their highly successful first initiative: "AT for Parkinson's". This same strategic model can now be applied as a working template for many new initiatives, including AT interventions and approaches for pain management, addiction recovery, worker well-being, sports applications, and AT in primary, secondary and tertiary school settings.

The Poise Project has projected for 2019 the expansion of successful programming to regional and international teams. This will only be possible with a solid, sustaining infrastructure and ongoing, generative financial security.

Please reward our two and a half years of dedication, passion, professional expertise, and personal sacrifice with the financial support it will take to finally get the job done and "Bridge the Gap" between AT and the general public. Here is a link to a timeline of all of The Poise Project's activities and achievements from May 2016-December 2018: 

January 20, 2019 will be FM Alexander's 150th Birthday.

Alexander technique has now spanned three centuries. Let's make the 21st century the one where everyone can access AT principles by the age of 21, no matter what their economic or social status!
