Alexander Technique lessons combine discussion and practical interactive learning.  With small adjustments to the way you hold yourself or move about will lessen the amount of strain you’re putting on your body.  Less strain means less pain.

Using a hands on approach, students are guided through the improvements.  First students understand the benefits to be gained from making slight changes.  Then Barbara takes students through the changes using her hands to guide them.  In group lessons, students take it in turns to work with Barbara, and all students benefit from each other’s experiences.

And even after the lesson, you’ll be thinking more before you move, putting the lessons into practice.  It’ll help you feel better than you have for ages.

The Alexander Technique is suitable for everyone because we all have poor movement habits.  It can also be helpful for people who are repeatedly putting extra strain on their bodies, such as dancers and sportspeople.  Singers find that it frees their body to improve their voice.  Pregnant women report that childbirth can be easier after learning to control muscle tension and lower the pain reaction to contractions.

“It helps to see Barbara’s flexibility and ease of motion!! Also she makes the classes fun and I enjoy our discussions.”  Kay

“I have much more freedom and ease in movement.  I am less stressful and tense which has helped me to gain an improved attitude and approach to life’s problems.”  Yvette
