Valerie Thompson Williams, Rowing masters gold medallist: My times became faster...

My times became faster while training using the Alexander Technique. It was a real boost to my mental training. I can definitely say that I wouldn't have had the rowing success I have had without finding the Alexander Technique and the great teachers that I have had.

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.
