Are you weighed down by discomfort in your body?
Does your mental state affect how well things are going?
Do you struggle, and nothing seems to help?
Do you wish to better understand how to support your overall health and well-being?
Are you interested in learning how to be more at ease, in a more self-directed way?
If so, then the Alexander technique could be for you!
F.M. Alexander's work is about self-improvement. How can I allow constructive change into my life? Alexander discovered some basic principles whereby our capacity to make considered, useful choices is enhanced. One tiny change at a time, and soon a skill can grow, helping to create more useful and enjoyable ways of going about daily life.
This process enables us to create new experiences for ourselves; ranging from leaving behind physical limitations to deeply touching accounts of a greatly improved general sense of self. F.M. Alexander called this:
DIRECTING ONESELF IN ACTIVITY
Ordinarily we appear to be making choices as best we can. But how do we know what our best is? Or is our best, simply, our own very familiar way of going about things?
Learning this process can help our lives in a very general way. We are exploring the relationship between thinking and movement; here we are able to touch on the 'cause–effect' of what makes up our experiences. We discover about F.M. Alexander's work within a small (affordable) group setting, meeting weekly or fortnightly, depending on participants' preferences.
Group classes usually run for six-session blocks.
Would you like to join in this personal and rewarding journey? I look forward to hearing from you.
