New Research: Posture has a direct impact on your mood.
Previous studies have found slouching can crush self-esteem and energy. But, a new study in New Zealand has tested the theory on people with depression. They found that sitting up straight boosted energy, enthusiasm, and attention. Click here for a Daily Mail article about the research.
The Alexander Technique understands this link. It is a psychophysical discipline, in other words AT recognises the link between mind, body and emotions. The way we feel is expressed in the body, just think back to a time when you were either very happy or sad or excited, how did your body look or feel? Could other people tell how you were feeling? The way we think can alter how we hold ourselves, but conversely, the way we hold ourselves has an influence on how we think and feel.
The Alexander Technique teaches us to recognise unhelpful habits in the way we think and move. It teaches us how to use ourselves with less tension, more poise and balance physically, mentally and emotionally. People often come to Alexander Technique looking for a solution to back or neck pain, but leave saying they feel lighter, freer and calmer too. Try it and see for yourself, put the spring back in your step this springtime!

Use the Alexander Technique to Meditate More Comfortably
There is a new article in Lion's Roar magazine explaining how Alexander Technique can make meditating more comfortable. As a mediator myself and an Alexander Teacher this is something that is close to my heart. Click here to read the article.
I am an Alexander Technique teacher based in the Oakwood/ Southgate area mainly, but I am happy to give workshops and group classes in other areas of North London and Enfield and further afield.
My main place of work is just a 10 min walk from Oakwood Tube station, which is on the Piccadilly Line. There is also easy parking available for those that drive (there are no parking restrictions).
