The Alexander Technique helps you to become aware of patterns of moving and being which are not helpful for you — and to learn to access more free, relaxed and beneficial ones. We work with everyday movements such as sitting, standing, speaking and walking to explore breathing, balance, support and flow. We can also work directly with skills such as music, dance, public speaking and horse riding etc. The Alexander Technique can help with problems cause by stress and excess muscular tension and strain, and is particularly well know as a holistic approach to improving posture, balance and back pain. It is also an excellent way to take care of yourself and maintain good functioning as you grow older. The Alexander Technique can be particularly helpful for performers, and others who use a complex physical skill for enjoyment or to earn a living.
The changes which unfold from the lessons can have a surprisingly deep effect on how you feel and function: you begin to experience a new (and almost magical) support from your postural system, resulting in a tangible feeling of being held and carried by your body. This leads to greater mental and emotional peace and calm. As a result you feel less tense and worried, and you have more energy and vitality. Problems such as chronic pain and stress often improve or disappear entirely. The positive effects of the Alexander Technique have been validated by numerous scientific studies.
Forthcoming Workshops and Events
I run regular workshops and classes — ranging from general introductions to the Alexander Technique, to workshops for singers and uncertain singers, to more eclectic events working with body-mind exploration and self expression. See details of those coming up soon below, and on the events page.
