I am an Alexander Technique teacher living in London, UK. I specialise in working with athletes and musicians to improve performance, though the Technique can be applied to any activity. The Alexander Technique aims to improve coordination and one’s response to the physical or mental demands of an activity. The overall result is better movement and less unnecessary strain and tension.
Some of the many benefits of Alexander Technique include:
- Improved posture
- A confident, poised manner for acting and presenting
- Increased ability to cope with stress
- Improved athletic performance
- Relief of back pain, neck tension and stiff shoulders
- Lessening of voice and breathing difficulty
- Improved exercise technique
- Improved balance in the elderly
- Aid in personal development
I am a qualified instructor (mSTAT) with over 10 years of experience teaching Alexander Technique in a variety of settings. I have been teaching Alexander Technique to the students at the Royal Academy of Music for most of my career. As an experienced horse rider and qualified riding instructor (BHSAI) I have worked with a large number of riders, on and off their horses. I have completed Malcolm Balk’s “Art of Running” training to teach gait analysis and application to running. Outside of these specifications I have worked with individuals and groups from a wide range of backgrounds, from people with desk jobs who struggle with back pain, to groups of conservationists who want a less strenuous way to do their craft, to rock climbers looking to improve their climbing.
I offer a range of services and ways to experience Alexander Technique. The best way to benefit from the Technique is to take a series of private lessons. I offer lessons in person and online. In a lesson we will work through basic movements such as sitting and walking to isolate poor movement patterns in everyday activities. If you have a specific activity (sport, music etc) that you want to improve then we will examine that as well. Lessons in person involve guidance and correction from the teacher’s hands whereas online lessons offer verbal explanations and guidance.
