This course is a general introduction to the Alexander Technique, defining and explaining the basic principles which underlie the technique: how people use themselves as a whole - mind and body - in everything they do, helping them move and breathe with less effort, improve posture, be more focused, cope with stress better and be calmer and more confident. The Alexander Technique involves no specific exercises, requires no special equipment and can be practised wherever you are. It is suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical fitness.

Some anatomy and physiology will be introduced where applicable. Topics include spatial awareness, balance, co-ordination, developing powers of observation and focusing.
