Alexander Technique at the South Bank Alexander Centre

sense of my own well being. I am grateful for it."
-- Joan Bakewell, TV presenter and journalist

"The Alexander Technique changed my life. It enabled me to
devote more time to creating beauty. This inner strength is
essential for all."
-- Andrew Logan, sculptor
