WHY HAVE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE LESSONS?
Reasons for visiting an Alexander Technique Teacher may include: Back and neck pain, aches, RSI, improving posture, sports performance, public speaking, stress management, pregnancy or professional development. Although the technique is calming and de-stressing, it is not intended to be a relaxation session. There are no Alexander Technique exercises either. Nor is it an alternative or complementary therapy; it is a method of far reaching postural re-education that can help you rid yourself of nagging aches and pains. Daryl currently offers private, one to one Alexander Technique lessons in East Sheen, Richmond, South West London. Areas with easy access include Barnes, Putney, Roehampton, Kingston, Twickenham and Kew. Public transport links are excellent, and free on-street parking is also available. There are occasional classes & workshops in Barnes and sometimes other areas around London. If you are interested in the corporate applications of the Alexander Technique, please contact me to discuss.
The Alexander Technique is a scientifically evidenced method that improves posture, increases all types of performance and reduces pain.

These studies demonstrate the effectiveness of the Alexander Technique in improving physical health and well-being, making it a valuable tool for anyone looking to enhance their general quality of life.
