An Introduction to the Alexander Technique

Onetime session

The September 2017 introductory course at the Wilmslow Guild is now closed.

Liz Hulse will be teaching an 8 week introduction at the Wilmslow Guild on Friday mornings in April 2018 along similar lines- see details here.

My next Wilmslow Guild course will start on 19th September 2018 and will run for five consecutive Wednesday evenings, 7.30 - 9.30 p.m. The course will be along the same lines as the September 2017 course, see details here.

The course will consist of an introduction to the principles and the practice of the AT, although it should also be helpful to more experienced students. Through explanation, demonstration and individual experience you will be guided to an understanding of the theory and the method of the AT.

As part of the course you will also be offered some individual attention to help you to discover how you usually (habitually) go about your everyday activities and you will be assisted to discover how you could improve these patterns of movement. The tutor will be assisted by several other qualified teachers.

Although there is a practical component to the classes, this will not be physically demanding and the course is suitable for people at any level of fitness. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

The course is booked directly with the Wilmslow Guild (not with me) and this link will take you directly to a course description and an online booking system.

I would not say I am a fan of the technique – I am a disciple. For many years I suffered with chronic neck pain following a horse riding accident. When my HR manager recommended the Alexander Technique I was intrigued. Her father, a stroke victim, had experienced an incredible recovery from practising the Technique – to the point where he no longer needed a walking stick. After the first lesson I felt a dramatic difference; my neck felt long and free like a giraffe.
