{ Advert }

Three-for-two offer at South Bank Alexander Technique 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.

"I find the Alexander Technique very helpful in my work.
Things happen without you trying. They get to be light and
relaxed. You must get an Alexander teacher to show it to
you."  - John Cleese

We currently have a New Year three-for-two offer: pay for
two Alexander Technique sessions and get three throughout
January and February.  For more information contact us at:

South Bank Alexander Technique Centre,
27a Blackfriars Rd, SE1
