Alexander Technique at the South Bank Alexander Centre

Alexander Technique and well-being.

"The Alexander Technique makes a real difference to my often
tense and busy life. Its thoughtful approach has made me
calmer, improved my concentration and given me a clearer
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

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.
