About the Alexander Technique

 

Many people experience unnecessary pain, tension or discomfort during their lives as a result of unconscious physical habits that we develop from an early age. These unhelpful patterns of movement become our 'normal' and we might go through our lives without pausing to examine why we have poor posture, persistent sore throats or general aches and pains.

 

An Alexander Technique teacher will help you to re-evaluate your day to day movement, teaching you how to prevent harmful habits and allow your body to rediscover an easier way of moving.

 

In an Alexander lesson the teacher will gently use their hands to help you feel how patterns of tension might be affecting your whole body. Over time the aim is to help you to be able to use the technique in your everyday life so that you can help yourself avoid undue strain and recover from injury.

'After every lesson with Kathy, I felt more relaxed, centred, and whole. Kathy has wonderful hands; warm, sensitive and in control. Through the lessons, I became more attuned to my own posture and habits, so that I was able to adjust my working practice towards a more healthy and sustainable one.' Rachel. Visual Artist

Having Alexander Technique sessions with Kathy made me more aware how the my body works. This gave me an insight as to how to improve everyday movement. I learned something new every lesson.

Kathy is kind and patient and I always leave the lessons feeling a bit more free in my body. I have back pain from scoliosis. (After lessons) I find that the pressure on my back is noticeably reduced. Alexander Technique will make you more curious about the way you move and why when doing habitual things. And the lessons are always with a sense of humour too.

Kathy’s such a skilled teacher, bringing insight and humour to guide gently in using the body in much more skilful ways. I’ve seen a huge difference in higher levels of energy - and lower levels of pain - since working with her. And it’s a lot of fun too!
