I’m retraining to be an Alexander Technique teacher in North London and writing a blog as I go. I’m taking up a more active career in later life after 35 years behind an office desk and many years of back, neck and shoulder problems. I started having Alexander lessons in 2009 after taking an introductory group class. I had one-to-one lessons for a few years, then took the plunge and started on a 3-year training course in London in 2016 to become an Alexander Technique teacher.
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.
