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 advice and coaching from my Alexander teacher during training for a London to Paris bike ride transformed my experience immeasurably and I am pleased to say that I was really able to enjoy the event without suffering as many of my co-participants did. I would urge anyone who is considering any physical challenge and is interested in, or, practising AT to seek some specific AT tips and advice.
