The Alexander Technique with Richard Brennan

Sun 1 - Sun 8 Sep 2019 & Sun 8 Sep - Sun 15 Sep 2019

An Introduction to the Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is a method of self-awareness on many levels. It is very simple and can be understood by anyone, yet at the same time it is very profound; it is a way of improving balance, posture and co-ordination. 

Many people think that the Alexander Technique involves improving posture by ‘sitting up straight’. Nothing could be further from the truth. It involves being aware and releasing the unconscious tension from our body allowing us to move through life with greater ease. It can dramatically help prevent or alleviate backache, neck pain, arthritis, insomnia, depression and anxiety as well as a whole range of physical aches and pains that are so common in our society today.

As these tensions are released, so are many of the thoughts that hold us back from being who we truly are. Emotions that may have been trapped within our body for decades can gently and safely be released. Many people find that the Alexander Technique helps their confidence, self-esteem and spontaneity, leading to greater contentment and a deeper love of life.
