Friends of the Alexander Technique

Friends of the Alexander Technique is a participative organisation – for people who use the Alexander Technique in any aspect of their lives.

Our aim is to encourage a sense of community amongst people at all levels of experience in the Alexander Technique - with a view to providing support for those who are learning, living and teaching these ideas, and to inspire others to become interested in them.

Friends of the Alexander Technique is a registered UK Charity and is fully supported by the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).

The Trustees of the Friends are all former Chairs of STAT.

At about the age of 45, I began to experience severe pain in both of my knees. I was told I had damaged the cartilage, initially caused by the use of a kicking strap on a sailing dinghy, and made worse by many years of beagling, and to stop beagling or risk ending up in a wheelchair. A few years later a friend suggested the Alexander Technique. At first I was very sceptical, but had also reached the stage where I was ready to try virtually any means to solve the problem. A few weeks after my first lesson, I had gone out beagling, but only walking.
