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.

tetramine, get inside it and take it to the streets.
Everybody will then meet up, join all the tetramines
together creating a big wall and hopefully a lovely piece of
art. The event is free and open to everybody. In order to
participate all you need to do is build your tetramine and
bring it along. There is only one rule - in order for the
tetramines to join and tessellate they must be assembled in
60x60x60cm cubes.
