Alexander Technique Teaching

The Alexander Technique works through assisting a person to improve the perception of their posture and movement. This may result in a better understanding of their balance and coordination, helping to improve functioning and their reactions to stimuli.

In a typical Alexander Technique lesson a teacher will explain, and use gentle hands-on guidance, to help an individual find ease and balance in their simple movements and everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking or bending.

Alexander Technique may be found to help people find relief from unnecessary tension and its effects.  This can help to bring about a positive sense of well-being.

Choosing a practitioner

It is important to choose a qualified teacher who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Alexander Technique.

You can check whether an Alexander Technique teacher is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at By choosing teachers registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.
