I love teaching the Alexander Technique. It has fascinated me over the past 20 years and I enjoy working with people to help them see how they can feel better. I’m a calm and my practice room reflects this facing onto a beautiful park.
From the first lesson, I want people to have things to observe and experiment with. I believe it’s never too late to improve.
I have people coming to me from aged 8 to 91.
I have developed a style called ‘Hands On Yoga’. This is a mix of the Alexander Technique and gentle Hatha Yoga and my yoga colleague, Chris Holt, and I run occasional workshops and retreats.
I commissioned and edited an Alexander text, Connected Perspectives, with 2 colleagues and this has become a standard text in several Alexander teaching schools internationally.
I am also trained as an ergonomic assessor and carry out workstation assessments in offices. Rather than the usual tick-box form that standard organisations offer, colleagues and I provide a more specialised service. We give a presentation, carry out the desk assessment with our informed postural awareness, give hands on Alexander work to improve posture standing and sitting and take before and after photos.
I really like jokes, especially puns – and I’d love to remember more than one joke at a time!
