"There are often too many words. The Alexander Technique reaches places beyond words."
"As a scientist I would never have believed that the Alexander Technique could make such a difference to me."

"Thank you for keeping my mind and body together during a difficult year."
"Why I like Alexander
I have learned to trust my body. It knows for example how to walk surefootedly downstairs. I have learned to listen to it rather than the anxious memories of falling."
Practising the Alexander Technique is a big 'plus' in my life, with a noticeable and lasting benefit. My body feels freer, lighter and more relaxed, and this enables me to do so many active things without stress or strain, with my energy reserves conserved.
I also feel it's beneficial to my mind, but I don't know how to express that!
"What I value most about the Alexander Technique is that my body has learned it and I don't have to think about it. My work very often involves speaking in public and acting as a focus for large groups in large spaces. Instead of adding to the list of things I need to concentrate on, the Alexander Technique helps me to be present and balanced,whatever is going on.I began lessons because of a problem with a stiff neck - it has vanished - and I carry on because of the freedom it gives me.I would recommend it, especially for anyone whose work involves performance or presentation."

Following the Alexander Technique with Leah has been beneficial to me in many ways, my posture and my breathing have improved. Above all is the awareness I have developed of the bad practices which had become second nature to me; now I have the tools to deal with them.

Fascinating; balancing (for body, mind and spirit); a journey of discovery; not a bit 'airy-fairy' - very grounded, practical and outward focused. Initially quite difficult to 'let go' and trust, but very liberating once in the flow.
It's much better
It doesn't hurt anymore
I realise I haven't felt safe in my body - this feels different
I'm not beating myself up as much as I used to, I'm more free
So light - an old friend has never seen me looking so well
I don't want to move. I feel I've found my right posture
Calm but interesting
I need more!
Subtle stuff and physical
This has worked brilliantly for me and my feeling of well being has improved significantly. I recommend AT to anyone with or without aches and pains.
The work is intelligent and I welcome learning to help myself
