Stress

When you are under stress the Alexander Technique can provide effective relief.

Too much pressure can make you ill; work, relationships, money troubles, commuting, health problems, exams, job interviews, can all have a combined effect on the body and mind.

To effectively combat stress, we need to address the physical, mental and emotional causes. The Alexander Technique helps us to control the way we respond to life and to return to a balanced state of body and mind.

Feeling grounded, mindful and calm will help you manage any stressful event, such as an interview, audition or exam, with more confidence and control.

Learning to manage stress with the Alexander Technique will also:

  • improve breathing
  • promote general relaxation
  • enhance mental clarity
  • help you avoid feeling overwhelmed
  • improve sleep
  • help you manage anger
  • reduce nervousness
  • prevent unduly excited fear responses

 

 

The Alexander Technique is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life.

I would not say I am a fan of the technique – I am a disciple. For many years I suffered with chronic neck pain following a horse riding accident. When my HR manager recommended the Alexander Technique I was intrigued. Her father, a stroke victim, had experienced an incredible recovery from practising the Technique – to the point where he no longer needed a walking stick. After the first lesson I felt a dramatic difference; my neck felt long and free like a giraffe. Soon after that my teacher said I had learnt enough to incorporate the technique into my everyday life and manage my situation myself.
