I’m in my final year of training to be an Alexander Technique teacher in North London, due to qualify in 2019. I came to the Alexander Technique in 2009 after years of back, neck and shoulder problems. I had tried many kinds of exercises and therapies but this made me look at how I was contributing to my own difficulties. Through a gentle process of re-education in one-to-one lessons with a teacher I have learned how to move differently. I am now more mobile and active than before, free of discomfort and pain and feel much more open and at ease in myself.
Before I decided to train, I wrote an article about my experience with the Technique, which was published in Connected Perspectives: The Alexander Technique in Context in 2015.
I’m posting monthly, on the first weekend of the month. If you subscribe, you’ll get an email notification of the latest post going out the Monday after that.
I’m a student member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) and you can find out more about the technique or find a teacher on their website. You can contact me on email@example.com
