Growing old

Many people begin learning the Alexander Technique later in life, and it’s never too late to start living more skilfully.  In fact, as you age, you may appreciate the benefits more.

Common problems associated with ageing are minimised when you apply the Technique. For example stiffness, pain, immobility, problems with balance and general health. The Technique gives you a choice to stay healthy, active and keep enjoying life.

Even progressive conditions like Parkinson’s Disease or osteo-arthritis can be better managed by applying Alexander skills.

Like any skill, the more you practice Alexander Technique, the better you get, and it will help you prevent health and functional problems as the years go by.

Alexander Technique lessons are a great insurance policy for a healthy, happy old age!

When I recommend AT to a friend I always say I prefer paying for a lesson than making a pension contribution. AT is an investment so that I will be able to enjoy my retirement to the full. If only the chancellor would give me the tax relief!

I was looking for some way to help manage my lower back problems without relying on pain relief medication. I have found my one-to-one AT sessions extremely helpful and have learnt to identify and avoid postures and actions that contribute to back pain. I now know how to relax and properly rest my back and neck. In my experience, AT is a whole body technique which can help one to be more self-aware and to understand how to move with less tension and consequently, with less effort. Hurray for AT!
