The Alexander Technique - run like the Kenyans

What have the Kenyan runners got that we haven't? Maybe it's
something natural, something we were born with, that they've
still got but we've lost.  After all, we all knew how to run
when we were children.

How can we get it back? There are eight pages on "how to
run" in a book on running I recently browsed, but nowhere
does it say to just run the way nature intended you.  
I bet the eleven Kenyans who won medals for athletics in 
the 2012 Olympic Games didnÕt have to read it, or the 
Kenyans who won eight of the last 10 London Marathons . 

The Alexander Technique gives us back the effortless,
economic running we had when we were young.

"The Alexander Technique makes running far easier."  Tarquin
Cooper in the Daily Telegraph.

Too good to be true?  Contact us to arrange a free
introductory session on 020 7928 6378 or
