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.
