Alexander Technique classes in south Bristol
As the lockdown begins to ease, we in the ITM are looking at ways in which we might be able to teach Alexander’s work in a socially distancing world.
My partner and I had already introduced new hygiene procedures before the lockdown, and we will review these procedures again before opening our doors to the public once more. PPE in some form will probably be normal for a long time to come, so we will continue to take advice on the most appropriate and effective equipment, and we will be experimenting with solutions to the problem of how we might use our hands in teaching.
The latest message from government and CNHC is that we are not yet allowed to return to teaching (some of our manipulation techniques cross a line that hairdressers do not).So we are continuing to watch developments, and looking forward to the day that we can welcome you back to the fascinating and life enhancing work of Mr F M Alexander.
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.
