{ 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.

"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

If you want to find out more about the Alexander Technique
and how it can help you, contact us to arrange a free
