By Students of Francis Caron
I invited Francis Caron to lead a session at a movement research residency I was hosting at Tangente — a local contemporary dance theatre. Francis is amazing! He was quick to adapt to the people in the room. It is clear that he can teach folks who both do and don’t know a lot about their bodies or anatomy. He is an exemplary, embodied practitioner and a concise and generous teacher. The technique is precise, patient and deep work.

Between 2016 and 2019, I had the opportunity to learn both Argentine Tango and Alexander Technique with Francis. I had no prior experience with somatic practice, but he was able to make the pillars of Alexander Technique understandable for me. He’s a patient, generous, challenging yet fun teacher. Francis gave me the tools and confidence to use what I’ve learned in Alexander Technique in other areas of my life. When it comes to learning new things, approaching habits that I might want to change, or finding the value in uncomfortable change, I feel more than prepared, and for that, I’m grateful!

The Alexander Technique helped me improve my posture and increase my awareness of how I move, sit, relate to my neck and head which tremendously helped with my frequent and painful migraines. Most of my headaches originated from my tense neck muscles, and no matter how many stretching exercises I did, or how many massages I went to, the effect was not long-term. Learning this powerful technique helped me improve the quality of my life as I am now aware of how I relate to myself physically, and am able to self-correct and thus release my neck tension before it triggers major headaches. I absolutely recommend Francis as a teacher of the Alexander Technique. He always listens to his student’s needs, gives excellent feedback, is tremendously patient, always making absolutely sure that you can apply the principles of the A.T. successfully.
