Friends of the Alexander Technique

Friends of the Alexander Technique is a participative organisation – for people who use the Alexander Technique in any aspect of their lives.

Our aim is to encourage a sense of community amongst people at all levels of experience in the Alexander Technique - with a view to providing support for those who are learning, living and teaching these ideas, and to inspire others to become interested in them.

Friends of the Alexander Technique is a registered UK Charity and is fully supported by the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).

The Trustees of the Friends are all former Chairs of STAT.

I would not say I am a fan of the technique – I am a disciple. For many years I suffered with chronic neck pain following a horse riding accident. When my HR manager recommended the Alexander Technique I was intrigued. Her father, a stroke victim, had experienced an incredible recovery from practising the Technique – to the point where he no longer needed a walking stick. After the first lesson I felt a dramatic difference; my neck felt long and free like a giraffe. Soon after that my teacher said I had learnt enough to incorporate the technique into my everyday life and manage my situation myself.
