Why the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a powerful tool for personal development, self-awareness and learning new skills.

It is a practical method of re-educating the way we use our bodies and ourselves as a whole.  It helps us to re-learn the relationship between  mind and body. It teaches us to make new and constructive choices about our posture and the way we think and move. With the Technique, instead of experiencing stress, tension and pain, we feel at ease.

The Alexander Technique helps millions of people across the world to naturally overcome:

"My first Alexander lesson with Diana was an enlightening and magical experience and I have enjoyed and benefited from every lesson since.  I work at a computer all day and used to suffer from shooting pains at the base of my neck which have now disappeared.  Diana is a wonderful teacher and a warm, caring person with a great sense of humour.  I cannot recommend her highly enough."
