The Alexander Technique


The Alexander Technique is a gentle and respected way of looking after ourselves in life and changing some of those things that we feel stuck with, such as backache, headaches, Repetitive Strain Injury, poor posture, anxiety and stress. It teaches us to change our habits and reactions to improve our health and wellbeing.


For over a century the Technique has benefited people from many walks of life. It can increase our effectiveness in the workplace amongst colleagues or in our interaction with the public, in the performing arts and sports as well as at home at the computer or the ironing board, when driving the car or pushing a pushchair or wheelchair.


The Technique is taught in individual lessons: the teacher uses words and touch to give the student a new experience of ordinary everyday activities such as sitting, standing and walking. Through the lessons, students acquire skills that they can bring to every activity and every area of life to increase their sense of wellbeing, lightness, clarity and effectiveness.
