Will it fix my problem?
The Alexander Technique is a study of causes not symptoms. There is considerable and growing evidence that learning the technique helps you to address the underlying causes of functional problems such as back pain, neck pain and discomfort caused by tension. Pupils also come to the technique for posture, stress, pregnancy related aches and pains and difficulties for performers. The best way to find out is to have an introductory assessment lesson.
Am I the right age?
At the Pimlico Centre our youngest pupil is five and our eldest is 98! There is no reason why age should be a barrier to learning.
Do I need to be fit?
There is no minimum level of fitness required and you will not be asked to perform any exercises or wear special clothing.
Can it help my sport?
Definitely yes! The Alexander Technique helps you become more mobile, more coordinated and more aware of your movements. From cricket to karate, from rowing gently to running a marathon, the technique can help your performance.
Does it involve manipulation?
No. The Alexander Technique is a creative learning process and the teacher will help you with both verbal and manual guidance. Alexander teachers are highly trained in a delicate and accurate use of the hands designed not to manipulate but to increase your awareness of your own body.
I have a disability
All of our teachers are experienced at working with students with a variety of disabilities and we strive to make the technique accessible to everybody. Please make sure we understand your needs when booking your lesson.
I’m in a wheelchair
Our teaching rooms are at Lower Ground floor level and so you will need to be able to walk down one flight of stairs to have lessons at our centre.
Can I just try it out?
Yes, start with one lesson and find out if the Alexander Technique is for you.
