“Each week I learn something new about the way in which my thinking affects my movement. I have found movement in my upper body that I’ve been seeking for years.”

Alexander Technique classes in south Bristol
If I had to sum up what the Alexander Technique is all about in one word, that word would have to be flexibility.
By far the most common reason that students come to see me is because of some kind of restriction. Often their movement is limited because of some kind of strain or pain that’s getting in their way and preventing them from doing things they really want to do. Sometimes people just feel “stuck” and don’t really know why. Fortunately, Alexander gave us a solution that’s simple and fun to learn.
For over fifteen years, I have been working as an Alexander Technique teacher in Bristol, helping people to move beyond their current limitations and get more out of whatever it is they want to do in life. Students are often surprised to discover just how flexible the human body is, and how easy movement can be.
But “flexibility” can mean more than just easy physical movement. It can also be used to talk about how we approach life in general, how we approach tasks, how we go about solving problems or deal with stressful situations. Life is so much easier if we can be flexible, adaptable, creative and able to change our responses quickly.
Alexander’s work changed my life completely. I’ve seen it make a huge difference in the lives of others, and I’d love to share it with you.
Test drive suspended
For obvious reasons, I will not be holding any introductory classes for the time being. Sooner or later, this will pass, and I look forward to welcoming you into Alexander's fascinating world when that day comes. Meanwhile I am still available to answer questions. You can contact me here:

In the following pages I will explain more about how the technique works, a little about myself and why I got involved in the work, and the different ways in which you can learn this process.
Mendip Road is in Windmill Hill, just a little way south of Bristol city centre, near St. Mary Redcliffe. It is a short walk (no more than five minutes) from Bedminster train station, which has regular links to Temple Meads.
We are also close to several major bus routes, including the 75, 76, 90 and M1 stopping on Dalby Avenue, and the 22 on St John’s Lane.
