{ Advert: The Alexander Technique and staying youthful }

At the end of their first Alexander Technique lesson most of
my clients agree they look five years younger.  Someone I
used to teach referred to her weekly Alexander lesson as her
"Alexander facelift."

What has changed?  The way in which we move reveals a lot
about age: as we get older we stiffen our bodies and
restrict our range of movement.

Also, as people get older their eyes tend to get smaller and
their faces get fixed.  Children have big eyes and alive,
elastic faces.  George Orwell said "At 50, everyone has the
face he deserves."

My colleague Elizabeth Walker was recently interviewed on
Woman's Hour because she was still working, teaching the
Alexander Technique at 97.  When I first met her she was 87
but looked 60.  She had a youthful twinkle in here eye and
she was upright  not with "shoulders back", "core
stability" good posture but with a lithe, poised body.

The Alexander Technique gives us back an effortless,
economic way of moving and being upright, and a light,
responsive face.

Too good to be true?  Contact us to arrange a free
introductory session.
