Mind, Body & Posture

As teenagers, very few of us feel comfortable in our own skin. Hormones, hot tempers, and growth spurts made us clumsy slouches tripping over our feet. You would hope that after leaving adolescence behind, we'd wave tat-ta to that too. Unfortunately, once we hit the workplace, years at an office desk has taught us the fine art of poor posture. And so the slouching continues. This bad habit doesn't stop in chairs though. We hunch over when we walk too. Poor posture, poise, and balance, is not only bad for our physical health, but mental health as well. It can be a sign of low confidence.

There are ways to improve your posture. Finishing school, perhaps? Doesn't sound very pleasant, does it? Requires too much hard work, practice, and putting up with posh matrons. Isn't there an easier, more gentle, less strenuous, and relaxing way to go about it?

It's called the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique is about learning to respond to any situation with less effort and tension. It can lead to better posture, freer movement, finding it easier to cope with stress, and raising self-esteem. The Alexander Technique can also help with chronic conditions such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder tension, migraines, anxiety, breathing disorders, osteoarthritis, spondylosis, RSI, and ME.

Rosalie Segal has over twenty years of experience teaching the Alexander Technique, giving talks and running workshops. Rosalie's next workshop is a 15 introductory session at The Art Stables in Finchley on the 18th September between 7pm-9pm. There will also be further workshops on the 23rd October and 4th December. The classes are limited to groups of eight to insure that everyone gets an individual hands on experience. To book call 07983 639452 or email
