Fear of falling in older people

A pilot study is assessing group teaching of the Alexander Technique for older people and its effects on fear of falling, balance, mood and quality of life.

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.
