The Alexander Technique has been a huge part of my life since the age of 16. I was very fortunate that my father, a GP who was highly enthusiastic about natural therapies had the sense to send me for lessons. I have a short leg and a foot muscular imbalance from birth and the technique has helped tremendously to improve this. I would cycle the 4.5 miles to my lesson each week after school feeling rather crumpled, but ride home far more effortlessly feeling released and lengthened! I have a huge enthusiasm for healthy exercise, I cycle to work, play tennis, jog gently and swim. The Alexander Technique complements my work as a Chiropractor enormously, to help maintain good health and balance and help prevent injuries from recurring. I wish to send a big thank you to Maureen Schofield my first teacher, Ray Evans and to Ron Colyer for their tremendous contribution and inspiration and to my pupils who keep the technique alive!
