I started having Alexander Technique lessons in 1998 to help resolve sciatic pain caused by an injury at work . Since then I have gained much understanding of my body and how it works best. I no longer suffer from sciatica . AT & my meditation practice, give me valuable insight that helps make look after body, mind and emotions.
I work with small groups, giving workshops & classes including workshops for Physiotherapists, musicians and older adults. I taught AT at Educare Small School Kingston for 7 yrs, a nursery & primary school with Alexander Technique at its core and love working with children and families. I also work 1-2-1 with clients with varying concerns, including: back & neck and joint pain, voice problems & rheumatoid arthritis, hypermobility, anxiety, stress, improving presentation skills.
After Graduating University I worked as a personal fitness trainer. An injury to my lower back caused persistent reoccuring sciatic pain which proved unresolved through exercise or physiotherapy. This intermittent and painful condition made me re-evaluate how I used by body and after recommendation I started AT lessons. During my lessons I was made aware of my habits of movement that were exasperating my back condition. I learnt to use myself in a more co-ordinated, efficient and easier way. I felt calmer and more in control. It was a truly empowering experience which I love sharing with my students now.
