{ Advert: The Alexander Technique: the key to looking good }

The Alexander Technique enables us to do everything
effortlessly; standing, moving, sitting at our desks,
walking up stairs.  Even thinking and decision-making are
effortless.

When we stand well our stomachs look flatter.  And when we
do things the Alexander way we look good; it's an elegant,
youthful way of moving, with sparky eyes and a frown-free
face.  A recent article in "Ok!" magazine explained how
stars like Madonna, Hugh Jackman and Victoria Beckham use
the Alexander Technique to enhance their "star quality".
What could it do for you?

Want to find out more?  Contact us to arrange a free
introductory session.
