The Alexander Technique enables us to re-discover our natural poise through awareness and prevention of habits which may unknowingly be causing us harm or difficulty. Lessons in the Alexander Technique can help us to: 
Reduce Pain 
Improve Posture 
Reduce and Control Mental Stress 
Gain a Natural and Relaxed Confidence 
Raise our Performance. 
The crux of the matter… 
Alexander discovered that the "way that we do what we do" has become largely habitual, so much so, that even though it could be hindering or harming us, we do not realise it. What may seem very normal to us, may not be at all natural. Crucially, he realised that all of our activities are dependent for their efficiency on the proper and natural relationship of the head, neck and back. This is achieved when the head is balanced on the top of the spinal column by the appropriate small muscles allowing a beneficial lengthening of the spine, and not held by the larger outside muscles of the neck leading to a harmful shortening of the spine. 
How have we gone wrong? 
Civilisation has evolved rapidly, particularly in recent centuries, and humankind has not adjusted adequately to the new and different activities in which it engages - for example, sitting on chairs at length, working in office environments, using computers and driving cars. We may unknowingly cultivate harmful habits of employing inappropriate tension in our desire to excel and these habits are being compounded in our society as young, naturally coordinated children imitate their increasingly dis-coordinated elders. 
The Technique in education and everyday life

All in the central, elegant London location of 10 Harley Street W1. 


"Alexander Technique did wonders through my 2 pregnancies. I avoided completely any back pain during my first pregnancy as I did sessions throughout the full 9 months. On my second pregnancy the minute I started to feel a bit of pressure on my back I did a few sessions and the pain was gone. I then carried on doing more regular sessions. I also had an episode of terrible sciatic pain during my second pregnancy which disappeared with just a couple of sessions of Alexander Technique."

"I suffered from back pain and wanted to sort out my posture, especially for wearing my wedding dress!. My awareness of my body and how it works has increased. I am constantly aware of how I am standing walking and sitting. The pain has disappeared. I really enjoyed my sessions. Claire is an excellent teacher who is very informed and I have already recommended her to several friends."
