Welcome to my website.
What is the Alexander Technique ?
Most people have vaguely heard of it and think it has something to do with posture. It is a lot more than that. We have habits and for most people some of their habits are interfering with the way their bodies are made to move resulting in muscle tension and stiffness, back neck and joint pain, stress and anxiety, breathing and vocal problems.
The Alexander Technique is a skill we learn to help overcome these unhelpful habits by having conscious control of how we move.
It is used by people to improve performance and prevent injury in music,drams and sport. It enhances business and presentation skills. it is also used to develop ease and effortless movement and gives support through pregnancy and and childbirth.
