Welcome to Blue Mountains Alexander Technique.

COVID19 Lockdown

June27-July 9- Hi and thanks for your interest in Alexander Technique. During the mandated COVID19 lockdown Jane and I cannot provide face to face lessons for obvious reasons. We apologise for any inconvenience. I will be offering Zoom lessons for those students who still wish to keep up. If you haven’t had Alexander lessons before, it’s very unusual circumstance, but I am happy to get you started on your Alexander journey with Zoom consultations if you are interested.

The Alexander Technique empowers people to change the underlying habits which are at the core of pain or reduced performance in their everyday activities. It works by improving the student’s movement, balance and coordination. It enables students to re-learn  the most effective and effortless way to move, stand, sit, and be in one’s body.

Here’s what sportsman Greg Chappell says:

The Alexander Technique will benefit anyone whether they are an elite athlete or whether they just wish to live life without the aches and pains that many people suffer and accept as part of life. It is a pity that these techniques are not shown to us all at an early age for I have no doubt that this would alleviate many of the causes of ill health in our communities.

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
