I started practising The Alexander Technique after watching a documentary on Channel 4 about F.M Alexander, and for me it was 'one of those light-bulb moments', as I instantly realised that my pain was caused not just due to my injuries, but also due to years of accumulated harmful habits, which were exasperated by a knee and shoulder operations.
For me the Alexander Technique has been life changing and I've found true happiness in allowing myself to be free of muscular tension in all my activities whether sitting, walking or just enjoying a well deserved semi-supine rest. Practising the Alexander Technique also helped me to enjoy all my creative activities from making silver jewellery to designing leaflets, posters, etc. It really is a joy being able to sit at the computer or use my tools free of muscular tension and pain. For this reason, I have always felt that one day I would like to train to become a Teacher and here I am a STAT qualified Alexander Technique Teacher trained at the London Centre for Alexander Technique & Training - LCATT.
I hope to pass on my experiences to others, as both my body and mind benefited greatly from the Technique. I believe that Alexander's teachings can provide a way forward for human development and it will be a great privilege to contribute to and hopefully extend his wonderful, yet sadly often overlooked, legacy.
