The Alexander Technique helped me release tension which I was previously unaware that I had, in particular when standing at the tee. In the past my mind would have been elsewhere and my thoughts made me more tense. Applying the Technique I discovered relaxing the jaw, feeling my socks in my shoes, sensing the ground beneath my feet and just being there really helped. My drive distance improved and I cut 5 shots in one game. I now play much more relaxed by applying these principles and am more aware of the moment and less focused on the outcome (what Alexander Technique teachers call end-gaining) and my drive distances have improved through being more relaxed and having greater freedom of movement.
Many areas in the UK have local groups of teachers. These function as informal support groups, organising work swaps, creating contacts for members who would like, for example, to run a workshop with another teacher, or just providing an opportunity to meet for lunch and a chat.
Each regional group can have its own area within the website in which it can conduct discussions, store documents or arrange events specifically for that group.
See below for the list of contacts.
