James Harwood

James was first introduced to the Alexander Technique at drama school in the early 1990s and returned to regular lessons when suffering from vocal problems as a young actor: the very same reason FM Alexander started his own work on himself in the 1890s! He trained for three years at the Alexander Technique Studio in South London and founded the Pimlico Centre for the Alexander Technique in 2006, whilst he was working as an actor in London’s West End. Nowadays, he combines teaching the Technique with teaching in the corporate world on both impactful communication skills and the productivity methodology “Getting Things Done®”.
