Regain control of your body and rediscover your natural poise with the Alexander Technique. It’s a skill for self-development and improvement, whatever your age. As creatures of habit, we are prone to repeat the same habitual postural patterns on a daily basis.

As a qualified Alexander Technique teacher I can recognise these harmful habits and with your participation, change them. This well-established, highly regarded technique, is especially beneficial to those that suffer from:

• Back, neck & joint pain • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) • Muscle tension & stiffness • Breathing & vocal problems • Anxiety and stress-related conditios

Learn the Alexander Technique to enjoy greater ease of movement, optimum balance and improved coordination, by releasing unnecessary muscular tension. The ultimate aim is to apply the Technique in everyday activities, whether at work, rest or play, by changing the harmful habits that contribute towards pain, stress, anxiety or breathing problems.

The Alexander Technique has been endorsed by doctors, scientists and medical researchers. 97% of people with back pain could benefit by learning the Alexander Technique. Jack Stern - Spinal Neurosurgeon.

The latest and most comprehensive study published showed the Alexander Technique can reduce back pain by a staggering 85%, offering significant long-term benefit. British Medical Journal.

Give yourself a powerful tool to:

• feel lighter and stronger • sit, stand and walk with ease • enhance presentation skills • improve performance • promote better long term health • facilitate recovery from injuries

Practising the Technique involves no specific exercises, requires no special equipment and can be practised wherever you are, whatever your age and no matter what you are doing.

Many world-renowned performers, athletes and artists are enthusiastic supporters and practitioners of the Technique:
The Alexander Technique works... I recommend it enthusiastically to anyone who has neck pains or back pain - Roald Dahl.
In the hands of a good teacher, the Technique is invaluable to anyone who seeks to maintain healthy physical posture and alignment - Ralph Fiennes.
