Learn how the technique can help you restore balance and coordination, improve poise, suppleness and mobility, gain control to reduce stress and pain and generally improve health vitality and awareness.

How does the Alexander Technique help?
During our lifetime we develop physical habits which interfere with our natural easy movement. This can lead aches and pains, stiffness of joints,headaches etc. Alexander lessons help you to rediscover the natural poise of the body which we can see in young children. This often brings with it a sense of general well being.

"In this work is exactly what is being done in Nature where the conditions are right,the difference being that we are learning to do it consciously" FM Alexander

What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a psychophysical re-education of the postural mechanism. Lessons are one-to-one. The teacher uses his/her hands to guide the pupil to improve the quality and ease of movement.

Who should have lessons?
People take lessons for many reasons:

* People suffering from bad back, neck/joint problems, people suffering from headaches, voice and breathing problems, RSI and stress or posture related disorders. Elizabeth has been a Trustee of the Charity BackCare

* Actors and Musicians and others to whom the quality of movement is important in their profession. It is taught in most good music and drama schools.

* People who enjoy sports and who wish to prevent injury and improve performance.

Elizabeth is a teacher who is particularly interested in working with sports enthusiasts and those wanting to return to sport safely after injury or a long pause. In particular she has had success in helping people with their running, cycling, swimming and skiing. She organizes regular Running and Cycling workshops in Chiswick, London

(She is a level 2 canoe coach, Trampoline coach, past dance teacher and has a 2nd DAN Black belt in Shotokan Karate. She is a member of the Chiswick Tennis and Canoe Clubs)

* Many people take lessons simply to rediscover a feeling of lightness and ease in everyday movements.

Elizabeth has been teaching Alexander Technique for sixteen years years to pupils of all age groups and ranges of ability.She also teaches at the prestigious Alexander Teacher Training school at Imperial Wharf, CTC
