AT word cloud

The Alexander Technique is a way of increasing your awareness of how you move, sit, stand and breath moment by moment and how you react to the stresses of everyday life. The Alexander Technique improves well-being and can reduce chronic pain, muscle strain and tension, anxiety and stress.

Jenny teaches 1:1 lessons and also a beginner’s group and a follow on group at Union Chapel, Wellington Road, Fallowfield M14 6EQ. The autumn group starts on Tuesday September 19 2017.

As well as teaching the technique to improve well-being and relieve chronic pain, Jenny’s other particular interests include

  • using the technique within education – helping teachers and older students manage stress, improve their presentation and communication skills and build confidence
  • helping runners run more easily, more enjoyably and with less injury
  • using the technique to help children and adults with disabilities or special needs
