I discovered that The Alexander Technique is really 'Mindfulness in action' rather than learning to sit or stand up straight. As a back pain sufferer myself, I gained a terrific amount of benefit from Alexander's Discoveries. I have over 14 years experience and I operate out of a dedicated Studio in Central Brighton, working with people who are not only experiencing back, neck and shoulder pain but maybe struggling with stress or anxiety. I knew much of my problem was related to bad posture, but was quite shocked at how I held stress and undue tension in my body, not only in the obvious places, ie. neck and back, but also in shoulders, hips and even ankles, etc. I was offered an operation on my neck and was on very strong prescription drugs. I tried lots of different treatments but the only thing to give long term relief was this life changing class and i'm now pain-free, without the need for an operation. As well as improving my posture, I felt I had gained control of my body rather than being a slave to it. I have also been able to apply this to practising Tai Chi and improving my running style. This impressed me so much I decided to embark on the 3 year training course to become an Alexander Technique Practitioner. Now into my 50's, I have been amazed that I move better and do things now that I couldn't do as a teenager. As well as running my own successful private practice I also have experience of tutoring at the Brighton Alexander Technique College training new practitioners as well as giving workshops and taster sessions in the workplace which I love.
