I'm a 40 year old man who works as a support worker. I was suffering from sciatic pain for a few years. I had tried many methods to alleviate the pain, including various exercises, but these only brought short-term relief. One day when I was looking for some natural medicine to ease the pain, I came across the Alexander Technique. I initially booked a course, which relieved my sciatic pain, and I now have regular sessions. I recommend the Alexander Technique, especially to anyone who has suffered from sciatica or posture difficulties. It has helped me to be more mindful how I move around, and how I sit and stand. I see a big difference with pain relief since I’ve started lessons in the Alexander Technique.
About the student network
The Student Network is an independent body that is coordinated by students. We host affordable workshops with a range of guest teachers and also organise social events to bring students together. In addition to this page, information about these will be available at:
- The STAT Student Network Facebook group
Our aim is to introduce students to the diversity of approaches that there are to the Alexander Technique, and to keep them up to date with the current issues within the Alexander community. We strongly encourage students and teachers to suggest topics of interest and we'll do our best to organise a related workshop. Please get in touch with us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our social events will be relaxed and informal, and this will be a great opportunity for students to interact and get to know each other.
In some social events we'll have guest speakers, teachers or students, who can provide information on a particular matter. That will not be in the form of a lecture, but rather the starting point of a discussion. Our evenings are not only open to Alexander students. Anyone who is brave enough can attend!
Student Network Coordinators
The student network is coodinated by two trainees: Deborah Levy and Jacek Kaleta.
