About My Practice
I work with people experiencing pain and tension as a result of activities as diverse as working at a computer, walking, gardening and playing musical instruments. I also work with people wanting to improve their posture as a means of feeling more confident at work, when speaking publicly and when preparing for interviews.
The Alexander technique aims to help you do any activity with good balance and co-ordination using the least amount of tension necessary. It is something you ‘learn’ rather than something you ‘have done to you’.
Here are some of the things you could learn in Alexander Technique lessons
• To pause briefly in order to choose how you, for example, bend to pick something up or respond to a stressful situation
• To move in ways that you are designed to move and that put less strain on your muscles and joints
• To recognise times when you create tension and learn to release it
• To ‘expand’ in to the space around you to help you feel more open, relaxed and confident
• To speak clearly without rushing even when you are nervous in, for example, interviews or when giving presentations or speeches.
