AT word cloud

The Alexander Technique is a way of increasing our awareness of how we move, sit, stand and breath moment by moment and how we 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.

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

  • education – helping teachers and older students manage stress, improve their presentation and communication skills and build confidence
  • running – run more easily, more enjoyably and with less injury
  • parents and babies – care for yourself while caring for your baby
  • using the technique to help children and adults with disabilities or special needs
