Alexander Technique Bristol
When everything is going well, we can take great joy in living to full capacity. Each day brings new and exciting opportunities and we approach our activities with balance and ease.
But for many of us, something seems to shift over the years. What used to be so easy can become an effort and a strain, diminishing our sense of freedom and maybe even the success and enjoyment we experience in our daily lives. Often we feel our only option is to put in more effort, to try harder, which only seems to compound our struggle.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way.
For well over a hundred years the work of Frederick Matthias Alexander has been providing people from all walks of life with the tools that they need to change, to develop and to flourish in their lives.
A New Approach to Life
If you’re reading this page, the chances are that you’ve heard something about the Alexander Technique and are wondering whether it might help you. If you have an inquisitive mind and would value more ease, flexibility and freedom in both thinking and movement, then the answer is likely to be yes.
During lessons I will share with you the principles and processes of Alexander’s work, so that you can learn how to apply them with increasing success to your own life.
Each lesson is designed around you as an individual. In a practical way, we will look at your everyday or more specialist activities, depending on your particular interests. Through a combination of questions, reasoning, ‘hands on’ interactions and modelling of a new way of thinking, you will discover how you can approach your activities in a fresh, easy and more effective way.
One of the most exciting aspects of Alexander’s work is that the skills you learn in your lessons are far reaching. In fact, in time they can be applied to every element of your life, with increasing effectiveness . So whilst you may experience rapid improvement in the particular activity we focus on in an Alexander Technique lesson, the skills you will be learning can ultimately be applied to the whole of your life.
