Alexander Technique at the South Bank Alexander Centre

Alexander Technique and Posture

The Alexander Technique teaches effortless movement and a
light and easy way of being upright. The lessons are
enjoyable and there are no exercises!

* The Alexander Technique gave Kevin Kline "about an inch
and a half of additional height."

* John Cleese says "I find The Alexander Technique very
helpful in my work. Things happen without you trying. They
get to be light and relaxed."

If you want to find out more about the Alexander Technique
and how it can help you, contact us to arrange a free
20-minute introductory session. We are five STAT-qualified
Alexander Technique teachers with a wide range of
experience. Daytime and evening appointments are available.

Short announcements from local organisations

ENTERTAINERS WANTED FOR LONDON BRIDGE ANNIVERSARY FAIR
In 1209 King John opened 'Old' London Bridge. This year will
mark its 800th anniversary. To commemorate this and to raise
money for The Lord Mayor's Appeal the London Bridge
Anniversary Fair will be held on Saturday 28 March.
London Bridge will be closed to traffic for the day and the
historic bridge will be recreated with craftsmen selling
their wares as they would have done hundreds of years ago.
The organisers are looking for performers to entertain the
crowds on the bridge during the day. All are welcome  from
poets to jugglers to musicians to actors  but should
provide entertainment appropriate to the period that the old
bridge stood - 1209 to 1831.
