The Alexander Technique is a way of re-learning how you move and use your body.  The Alexander Technique not only improves posture but is also excellent for a wide-range of muscular-skeletal problems.

‘Stop doing the wrong thing and the right thing will do itself,’ wrote FM Alexander after he discovered, through a long process of detailed self-observation, the importance of maintaining a balanced, dynamic relationship between the head, neck and back.

If you are curious about self-improvement, or sense a need to restore natural good movement, while discovering a new dimension in your life, Yes!

‘The skills you learn will last long after the lessons, even for the rest of your life.’

A course of 20-30 lessons can provide a good foundation for improved well-being and on-going self discovery.
Alexander Technique teachers are highly trained.

What happens in lessons?

Through explanation and guiding touch, you will re-discover poise, balance and ease within yourself.  By working on simple everyday activities, such as sitting, standing and bending, you will learn your co-ordination works and where you create tension.

You will learn how to improve the way you use your body.  This awareness will enable you to change long-standing habits and function more efficiently.  You will also lie in a semi-supine position on a couch to release your limbs, realign and rejuvenate. Bliss!
