Discover Freedom of Movement and Natural Alignment | Blue Mountains Alexander Technique
After 20 years of chronic back pain, Kyle Stewart (pictured) felt that nothing could help overcome that condition. He was taking strong medication and working with daily discomfort.
Alexander lessons showed him new insightful ways to analyse his movement. He discovered that he was putting pivotal twisting pressure down onto his injury repeatedly, in many of is movements. He learned to redistribute his weight and modify his movement to take the pivoting pressure off the injury site. Kyle could notice the benefit of that almost immediately. During his course of lessons, he also learned other skills and strategies that he could use for improvement.
Kyle uses his Alexander skills every day to manage his back injury and to minimise the occurrence and intensity of pain episodes. I am grateful to Kyle for allowing me to share his story and hope that it helps you to understand a bit more about Alexander Technique and how it may also be useful to you.

What is the Alexander Technique?
Alexander Technique is like a very accurate instruction manual for human movement and psycho-physical functioning. You can learn the simple instructions to provide immediate help. It surprising how much we don’t know about our own movement until someone shows us
Some people will go on to learn the whole instruction manual because it is so interesting. They are able to apply very accurate movements to achieve their activities without discomfort.
Without the instructions it’s easy to go wrong. With the instructions things start to make sense.

Elastic postural tone
The Alexander work encourages an easy uprightness marked by reduction in over-tension and better balance.
People are quite often surprised that they feel light and buoyant using Alexander principles.
Alexander Technique is not exercise, it’s neural re-education.
Reduction of chronic pain
People involved in chronic pain studies (click here) reported a significant and permanent reduction in the number of pain days that they experienced. Alexander Technique does not teach pain reduction techniques, nevertheless, one common outcome of the somatic education component in Alexander Technique is a reduction of pain conditions.
The Alexander work leads to a reduction of over-tension, greater accuracy and conservation of energy. These factors can augment good technique further in the performance of many skilled activities such as playing an instrument, speaking in public, sports and a range of other human endeavours.
A new outlook
FM Alexander suggested that we translate every experience into muscle tension. Letting go of over tightened muscles, finding easy balance and buoyant uprightness brings with it a new positive disposition and often an improved emotional flexibility.
“Michael Shellshear is a masterful Alexander teacher. He guides one into freedom, not just physically but also on a deeper level. The knowledge he imparts about Alexander’s teachings and its relationship to the human experience will remain with you for a lifetime.”
" 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.
