Blue Mountains Alexander Technique
What is the Alexander Technique?
Alexander Technique is like a very accurate instruction manual for human movement and posture. You can learn the simple instructions to provide immediate benefit. Without the instructions it’s easy to go wrong. With the instructions things start to make sense and can work better.

" I have Parkinson’s. I can truthfully say that I wouldn’t be walking now without knowledge of the Alexander technique.
Michael transmits to the pupil a very fine inner consciousness.
It is, literally, life-saving."
John Summers - Musician. Hazelbrook
The tools and practical lessons taught by Michael allowed me to bring awareness to how I was moving physically through the world. Pain levels are down and I am excited to see how far I can take this journey of awareness and body integration.
Kyle Stewart Blackheath
It was terrific. With all the bits and pieces of pain in my body, I now have a possible solution. All it requires is focus and application and a modicum of will power. Good luck me!
I was led to discover more about controlling my movements including standing, walking, sitting and rising. Very comprehensive but in a manageable staged sequence. I became very aware of my body and movements and my ability to make conscious decisions on how to move it. I have been pain free for quite some time now.
“Jane, I really can’t thank you enough for giving me the tools and information to shift some particularly challenging lifelong habits. Who knew bringing awareness would help so much?! A big thank you!”
“Thank you, Jane. After your Body Mapping session, the flow of air and sound was free and fluid. It was awesome!”
“Here’s a way to rediscover your body and connect to the way it moves. Come away with a strong connection to a more free flowing, moving you!”

Michael has extraordinary skill in Alexander Technique and his group classes are a joy to attend.
Dave Starr- Hazelbrook
Michael’s use of language really helped me understand and reveal the possibilities of movement without “holding on” and without fear. It was great to observe the work of others, too, as it reinforced the philosophy. A transformative day for me! Thank you, Michael
Susan Head. Bowral NSW
A wonderful, engaging and inciteful workshop, with plenty of opportunity to practise the work and much to take home to continue improving my co-ordination and use. The group of people were great to engage with and Michael with his expansive knowledge and experience bought the whole day seamlessly together. Thank you.
