A session of Alexander Technique is called a lesson as it is more an educative experience.
Lessons are 40 mins to an hour long and are usually 1:1.
The teacher guides the pupil through simple movements such as sitting, walking using their hands. The pupil is led to a greater understanding and awareness of their co-ordination and balance. The experience is often one of increased lightness, freedom and spaciousness.
I offer individual lessons and small group classes.
I am based at The Haven, Market Square, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire. I also do home visits if required.
Testimonial ‘I know this won’t cure Parkinson’s but if and I feel it will improve my range of movements it is well worth doing. I have been learning the technique for 3 to 4 weeks and already I am noticing an improvement with my posture. Cath’s use of hands gently reminds me of how | I should be moving, and I find I am shuffling less’.
Cath completed a 3 years at Edinburgh Alexander Teacher Training School (EATS) and is a fully accredited member of The Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT)
Randomised control trials have demonstrated how people with long-standing back pain or neck pain, as well as people with Parkinson’s can benefit greatly from lessons in the Alexander Technique. The findings of these studies are published in the leading medical journals, the BMJ (back pain), Annals of Internal Medicine (neck pain) and Clinical Rehabilitation and Medicine (Parkinson’s)
