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 six STAT-qualified
Alexander Technique teachers with a wide range of
experience. Daytime and evening appointments are available.

COIN STREET CHRONICLES: GWEN SOUTHGATE
Monday 2 November
7pm at Waterloo Library, 114-118 Lower Marsh
Coin Street Chronicles is a tale of real-life drama set in
the 1930s and 1940s on the South Bank - now a cultural
showcase, but then a grimy, raucous underbelly of the city.
Among the books many colourful characters are big-hearted,
garrulous, chain-smoking Aunt-mum; yarn-spinning, practical
joker Grampa Benson; and Gwen Southgate's unsquelchable,
much-married, and perhaps bigamous, mother. The scene
changes during World War II, when evacuation from London at
the age of ten opens up wider horizons for Gwen Southgate
and her two younger brothers. The memoir ends as she,
finally, escapes the culture of poverty-after a determined
struggle spearheaded by her feisty mother. Don't miss Gwen,
over specially from America to launch the book.

new homes, offices, shops and hotels designed by leading
