The Alexander Technique at the South Bank Alexander Centre

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

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

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