Mind-Body Study Group

Experiencing the mind-body connection brings us a whole new sense of self and vitality. It is the beginning of a lifelong journey towards self-realisation.
Ongoing session

​Next Course Begins on 30 April 2019

THERE ARE LIMITED PLACES ON THIS POPULAR COURSE. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.

In this ten week course we will study both theoretically and practically the key elements of the mind-body connection and learn how it can facilitate quiet, restorative periods and also be a powerful tool for finding ease of movement, a sense of individuality and authenticity in our relations with others.

​F M Alexander described his discoveries in the language and understanding of his era, but in essence his insights are timeless and have much in common with deeply influential ideas and practices found throughout human history: the "non-doing" of Lao Tse and the early Taoists; the mindfulness of Zen Buddhism, the energy flow of Qigong and Tai Chi Chuan, the capacity of the mind to suspend action (John Locke), the power of attention (William James). More recently neuroscientists are discovering more about embodied cognition, neuroplasticity and intentional inhibition - all related to the mind-body connection.

I'm a 40 year old man who works as a support worker. I was suffering from sciatic pain for a few years. I had tried many methods to alleviate the pain, including various exercises, but these only brought short-term relief. One day when I was looking for some natural medicine to ease the pain, I came across the Alexander Technique. I initially booked a course, which relieved my sciatic pain, and I now have regular sessions. I recommend the Alexander Technique, especially to anyone who has suffered from sciatica or posture difficulties.
