Testimonial: "I have benefited greatly from learning the Alexander Technique. To start with it seemed rather strange... but it works. I no longer have backache. My body moves in a much more comfortable way and my arms swing to the side rather than being joined to the side of my body. A strange side effect for me is that in crowds people don’t seem to bump into me so often as I walk straighter, more confidently and with more presence. It is fantastic to be able to move in a more springy way in my late fifties. I was not aware of how posture affects speaking too. Although I always thought I stood up straight, with subtle changes to the position of my head, in my Alexander Technique lessons, I could speak much more clearly. "But how I wish that I had learned these skills years ago. Having taught for thirty five years I could have incorporated the Alexander Technique into my lessons to support  my pupils and I think I would have felt and looked much more confident in all I did. Better late than never" - Ros B

"You did teach an old dog new tricks!! You have a made me  very aware of how to walk, sit and get out of my clapped out settee correctly" - Ilse D
