What is an Alexander Technique Teacher?

Bradley Stoke Physio & Health's Teacher of the Alexander Technique can help you with your personal development. Susie will do this through supporting you in becoming more self aware, mindful and enhancing your ability to use new skills.   She can help you to re-educate your body and mind so you can free the body from strain and the mind from stress, thus promoting a pain-free way of being.

What can Alexander Technique help you with?

As a qualified Leader in Running & Fitness, Susie has a particular interest in using Alexander Technique to enable runners to run more efficiently and effectively.  As such, Susie is a core member of our Sports Injury & Performance team.  Susie can help you through:

  • Running MOT's: using a video of yourself running to help you identify an easier, more efficient, running style
  • Running Technique Analysis: a more intensive session looking at improving your running performance through changing habits that may be causing you pain, muscle tension or mobility problems, and through optimising your balance, posture and co-ordination

Alexander Technique can support you with realising some very complex goals such as achieving your personal best, sleeping better or perform well in tests, shows or events.

The effects of the Alexander Technique can therefore be very powerful as you are involved, body and mind, at every step of the way.

How does Alexander Technique work?

Alexander Technique works because it empowers you to help yourself. This is because the Alexander Technique is not so much a therapy, but an educational technique.  You will have private one-to-one lessons to help you improve the connection between your thoughts and what you physically do.

Susie will observe you and offer you verbal and hands-on feedback during your lesson. Over time you will learn to observe yourself and be much more aware of how you are using your body. This will help you change long-standing habitual patterns of movement, and to function more efficiently.
