Alexander Technique Lessons in a bushland setting

Alexander Technique

I teach the Alexander Technique because I can help people through  improving the way they think, move and function in the world. Learning Alexander changed my life. I was able to overcome a cycle of chronic pain, recognise destructive patterns in myself and start to create positive outcomes in my life. I knew that I wanted to share this amazing discovery with the world.

Alexander Technique offers strategies that can be used by individuals or organisations for positive outcomes. Imagine knowing yourself with clarity and being able to employ a technique that provides you with the best possible outcome every time.

Even if we have got things terribly wrong or if we have been a victim to unfair circumstance, Alexander shows us the opportunities that are available to us in any situation. Regardless of where we are, what we are doing and what has stood in our way, Alexander Technique is a way of consciously connecting to our best potential. Whereas many paths offer us a helping hand, Alexander Technique shows us how we can help ourselves. It’s absolutely about self-empowerment and experiencing wholeness.

Alexander Technique is my way to evolve and sustain my own wellness. Let me share that process of discovery and resource with you. If you are curious to discover the interplay of movement, thought and spirit in yourself or within your organisation, then I invite you to learn the Technique with me in Leura, in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney.

If you don’t know a lot about Alexander Technique, then you will benefit from just a few moments of finding out. I’ve made a short Introduction to help you. Click here.

Like in my own story, some people are totally inspired by the potential of Alexander’s discoveries. If you wish to share your journey and perhaps help others to benefit, Alexander Technique 30 day training is an in depth intensive process that we can explore. We are offering Alexander Technique in depth courses and we are finalising our application for accreditation to carry out Alexander Technique Teacher Training. Interested?
