Alexander Technique in East Yorkshire

Mind map - elements of Alexander Technique

 

I believe you have your own unique story to tell. Your own unique joys, sorrows, successes and problems. I also believe that you have, within you, everything you need to make your own journey through this life. It is a joy to work with people on that journey. I also believe it helps to have support to discover that inner wisdom  which I can give in my own unique way.

Mostly I wish to provide  a non-judgemental, calm, nurturing, playful experience in a safe space where you can give yourself “me-time”, be authentically you and have the freedom to explore just what your “inner self” needs. This will be a personal experience and might be anything from learning to find calm, to release emotional and physical tension, how to juggle or balance on a beam, regain poise and freedom of movement, improve confidence, change habits and ways of thinking to going on a magical journey into the present moment.

To achieve that we will work together as you learn the Alexander Technique.

I am a STAT qualified Alexander Technique Teacher (in Beverley, East Yorkshire, Hull, Humberside and The Wolds.)

 

 

The benefits of learning the technique are many fold;

You can –

  • Reduce (and abolish) unnecessary pain and discomfort
  • Reduce effort and move with ease
  • Reduce the experience of feeling you have no time in the day and learn to chose how to be more focused with less strain
  • Reduce the effects of anxiety and improve technique to calmly, effortlessly, perform in your particular field (music, acting, dancing, any stage-related performance)
  • Improve balance & co-ordination
  • Major clinical trials demonstrate Alexander Technique lessons are effective for both chronic back pain & chronic neck pain

Over a course of lessons (20 to 30 are recommended but you may notice benefits after your first lesson) you will experience greater ease of movement, improved posture, less tension (and pain), improved wellbeing and learn techniques to balance body and mind.

I support my clients during this process of change, in which they explore their own co-ordination and experience of the world, which brings about change in themselves (and in other’s perception of them) as it involves discovering an inner calm, peace and quiet confidence.

Alexander Technique lessons are mostly taught on a 1:1, with teacher and pupil, although it is occasionally taught in groups.  The pupil learns tools for both the mind and body, so the technique is for the whole person.  During a lesson the teacher use skills they have taken 3 years (full time) to develop and use their hands to guide the pupil through everyday tasks such as sitting, standing and walking whilst applying the Technique.

I  give  workshops on the Alexander Technique at various venues in East Yorkshire, Humberside and The Wolds.  Please contact me to attend one of these sessions.
