{ Advert: New Year's Resolution? Try Alexander Technique! }

The Alexander Technique: improve how you move, perform, look
and feel. 

The Alexander Technique is a simple and practical method for
self-improvement and self-help.  Anyone can benefit.

* Poise, vitality and coordination improve.
* Breathing and speaking become easier.
* Movement becomes freer, lighter and more enjoyable.

"Slouching takes inches off your height and can make a
dramatic difference to the natural line of your body. When
you stand correctly your stomach will appear flatter. To
overcome bad postural habits enlist professional help. A
course of lessons in the Alexander Technique is the best
method."

'40 ways to improve your body' Elle magazine

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

KASPAR - POP-UP THEATRE IN BANKSIDE RAILWAY ARCH
Wednesday 12 January to Sunday 6 February
Wed-Sat 7.30pm; Sat 2.30pm; Sun 5pm at Arch 6, Burrell
Street; 10 (conc 8) from 020 7261 9565
Kaspar Hauser was a mysterious figure who was discovered in
a German town square. He could speak only one sentence.
Later, it emerged that he had spent his childhood in a dark
room, cut off from human contact. He was taken in, taught
how to speak, how to be a regular member of society. Handke
re-imagines Kaspar today; an absurd man formed and deformed
through his violent exposure to the language of our society
- the language of adspeak, corporate phrases and sports
platitudes. In this remarkably inventive play, ideas about
received speech, conformism and the corruption of the
individual are exploded into bizarre and fascinating vocal
rhythms and stage images. This production, supported by
Southwark Playhouse, filters Handke's work through the
vapid, sterile spaces of a vast, glass-fronted railway arch
just off Southwark Street.
