To order black and white prints of any of these photographs, you should email the office at office@stat.org.uk. The office will reply with a quote and an estimated delivery time after receiving payment (because orders are printed individually, it is unlikely that any print can be supplied for less than £15).

Jpg files of the archive photos are available to teaching members of the Society only at no cost. However, there is an administrative fee, depending on how many photos you wish us to send you. For up to six there is no charge; from seven to 12 there is a charge of £10.00 and for 13 to 20 a charge of £15.00. For more than 20 images, please contact the STAT office for information on the administrative fee.

Please email the office at office@stat.org.uk for details of availability and copyright restrictions.

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.
