As soon as people come with the ideas of unlearning instead of learning you have them in the frame of mind you want.

About the Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is a subtle yet powerful hands-on method for managing stress, improving posture, reducing back and neck pain and bringing free movement back to the body. Learning the technique and putting the skills into practice allows you to understand how the way you move and carry yourself can cause tension and pain. Fortunately once we understand how this works we can begin working towards greater ease in our bodies and an increased sense of well-being.

What Happens in my lessons?

Through verbal explanations and gentle hands-on guidance your teacher will help you find ease and balance in simple movements such as sitting, standing and walking. There are no specific exercises and you can apply the technique as you go about your life, driving the car, collecting the children from school, working at the computer, etc. During your lessons, which are one-to-one, you will come to observe how you move and feel in yourself and this new awareness, alongside practice of your new skills will enable you to change long established habits and so function more efficiently giving you a greater feeling of well being. Part of the lesson may include lying down in the classic semi-supine position, allowing for maximum support and relief for the back.
