I first came to the Alexander Technique in 2002 because of chronic neck and shoulder pain gained from long hours sitting at a computer workstation. At the time I was working as an IT consultant for Investment Banks and Stock Brokers and I found the high demands of the job made taking care of myself as I worked at my computer very difficult.
A friend told me about the technique, so I decided to give it a try. Within a few months of weekly Alexander lessons, my neck and shoulder issues were largely resolved and I continued to have lessons for many years even after finding relief from my physical problems, because I found the technique so fascinating and useful. Not only did my balance, coordination and posture continue to improve, but I found myself much calmer, and able to handle stressful, demanding situations much better and with more clarity.
This naturally led me to wanting to study it in more depth and so I trained to be a teacher at the Alexander Teacher Training School.
I teach in East Finchley, North London, and in Central London, Liverpool Street and Regent Street (Soho)
