If you worry about pain, bad posture, losing mobility & confidence, then the Alexander Technique can help you to regain what has been lost...
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The AT is a mental discipline that teaches how to let go of tension in your body and how to enable you to move with ease and less effort. We get used to doing the same thing in the same way, and it’s hard to not make the same kinds of choices we are in the habit of making – the ones we are used to making without thinking about it. Learning the AT promotes a greater awareness between your thinking and the reactions within your body, helping you to understand how and when your problems occur and giving you the tools to change what you do and how you do it.
The Alexander Technique is a skill that teaches you how to move with ease and how to live
your life without hurting yourself. We all push ourselves, often at the expense of our
physical and mental health. By learning to understand your reactions to the stresses of life
and to move your body in a more efficient way, you will learn how to regain control and find
a solution to your problems.

Improve your posture, mobility, confidence and help ease your pain.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A LESSON?
During a lesson, you will experience a way of moving that requires less effort and will be able to apply this to everything that you do. You are fully clothed and I will guide you with verbal instructions or a light touch. A lesson is bespoke to your requirements.
The AT is about learning to have your attention on you while your attention is directed elsewhere (to your work, screen, activity or another person). You can then choose to move with less tension, disturbance and a greater sense of self.
The AT brings enormous improvements to chronic back conditions and helps to deal with stress. The AT boosts wellbeing and performance and is effective at managing chronic pain. By improving balance, posture and coordination, it increases efficiency in daily life and helps to increase energy and mobility.
It is likely that you have found this page looking for help to feel xyz or perhaps you are an employer looking to help the comfort and in turn efficiency of your team.
Anyone and everyone can benefit from incorporating AT teachings into their every day life. Any age, any profession, any circumstance. Perhaps you’re predominantly sat down for the majority of your day, or maybe you are active and always physically busy. Whether you work at a desk or you’re always on the go the Alexander Technique can help.
From labourers lifting heavy weights, a parent/childminder lifting growing children or office staff at desks - the chances are you have formed habits that are not serving you well.
A LITTLE ABOUT ANDREA:
I am a firm believer in looking at the root cause of problems to find a long lasting solution. My aim is to help people to be pain free and to feel more empowered
and able to take control of their well being. I know how to help you to feel better
at work and how to support yourself during times of stress.
In life, we cannot always change our environment but we can certainly choose how
we respond to it. Being comfortable in your body and having a renewed self confidence
is possible for everyone. As my students tell me, this is a complete re-set and it helps
them to enjoy the week ahead with a fresh perspective.
