Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique teaches you how to improve your movement and posture in action. Easy upright movement should be everyone’s’ inheritance. It’s not the case. Even a cursory glance will demonstrate that you’re not alone in struggling with movement, posture, and skilled activities.

Alexander Technique lessons will change the way you think and feel about moving.

Dissolve “stuck” habits that make your movement feel painful, awkward, and misaligned.

Alexander Technique helps you to understand how to move your body with new underpinning knowledge.

Experience ease, poise and dynamic energy in your movement.

Alexander Technique Resilience

Learn how to recover from and prevent injury or re-injury. Discover new ways to cope with stress and recover your calm in all situations.  Resilience isn’t about just strength and stamina. Alexander Technique teaches you how to train your mind to cooperate with your body, how to be alert for injury triggers and how to prevent destructive loop responses.

You will gain essential knowledge of your body’s fundamental organisation and structure.  Discover profound ease in the way you function in any activity.

Body Mapping with Jane Shellshear

If you are a musician, then you can learn how to move with your body’s design for playing with ease and efficiency. When you are free of the limitations imposed by overwork at your instrument, you connect profoundly to your sound, the music and your audience. 

Jane is a highly experienced musician, Alexander teacher and a Licensed Body Mapping Educator. Body mapping is for musicians and music groups. Click on this link for more information

Here’s what our students say:

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.

Michael is clearly very knowledgeable but does not overwhelm with jargon. He communicates clearly and provides ample feedback.  No question or observation from me was too trivial.

I have been pain free for quite some time now. 

The new studio is very conducive to calm and quality treatment.  A wonderful setting.

Ron Thomas - Blaxland

“Michael Shellshear is a masterful Alexander teacher.  He guides one into freedom, not just physically but also on a deeper level, addressing many layers of one’s experience at the same time. The knowledge he imparts about Alexander’s teachings and its relationship to the human experience will remain with you for a lifetime.”

Justine Bristow - Hazlebrook

“Thank you, Jane. After your Body Mapping session, the flow of air and sound was free and fluid. It was awesome!”

Christina - Singer Brisbane

Wasn’t sure what to expect, so the day flowed very well, and the information was easy to follow.  Thank You

Lyn Midgely - Hazlebrook

“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!”

Irene Iskric -Molong NSW

“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!”

Andrew - pianist Melbourne

I found it very informative and helpful-radical in simplicity of changes in attitude to body and movement, creating new possibilities for ease and change!

David Harvey - Hazlebrook NSW

Michael has extraordinary skill in Alexander Technique and his group classes are a joy to attend.

Dave Starr - Hazlebrook

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. Thankyou.
