Sheffield Alexander Studio

Nether Green, Sheffield, S11 7FA

Hello and Welcome

I am Lucy Ascham, I came to the work in 1989 as a musician with stage fright and have been teaching for nearly two decades.   My Alexander Technique practice was established in 2003 and covers Sheffield and Manchester.  I am a fully certified, insured member of STAT.

Do you experience poor posture, aches and pains which limit what you are able to do in any day?  Are you looking for a lasting answer to these problems?  Have you tried various treatments and therapies and nothing has worked in the long term?  Do you want to discover a process to address the root of your back and neck pain?

Would you love to play, sing or perform with more poise and ease?  Read on because there is information here to help you release unwanted tension so that you can sit, breathe, stand, carry and perform with more fluidity, power and ease.

Using Alexander’s discoveries of 150 years ago, together you can restore poise for better intelligent posture, balance and coordination for life.
 

I have a dedicated Studio upstairs at  9 Armthorpe Road, Nethergreen, Sheffield, S11 7FA.

Children under 16 will need to have an adult stay with them.  As learning is done through imitation and repetition, its best to learn together.

Lessons are like music or language classes and need practice outside the sessions to be most effective (20 minutes per day).  Have you ever heard of the opera singer Pavarotti?  He had singing lessons each week until shortly before he died.  He knew the power of having a mentor, someone to show him the parts he was too close to notice in himself.  I provide all the unique process,  please just wear comfortable clothing and come ready to  learn, and be surprised and discover more about yourself.

Learning is tailored for your individual needs, activities and interests.

Some of the benefits of investing in a course of lessons include:

  • reduce back, neck and shoulder pain
  • prevent joint deterioration
  • increase flexibility, stamina and energy
  • improve circulation and breathing
  • maintain balance and poise
  • reduce stress
