Introduction to the Alexander Technique in Sheffield

Monday 8 April     12.00 noon-1pm     £6 per person / small group workshop, Nether Green, S11

 You have probably heard of the Technique and had it recommended to you by someone you trust, so now is a good time to come and see for yourself.

Do you experience aches and pains?

Do these limit what you are able to do?

Would you love to move more freely, with less pain and more enjoyment?

Would you like to be more comfortable in your skin, more connected to your body and have better skills at self-management so that you can improve your quality of living?

Join us for an evening to discover how the Alexander Technique could make a lasting and profound difference to your life.

Do you know what do all the celebrities Sting, Paul McCartney, Dame Judi Dench and Madonna have in common?  They all practice the Alexander Technique. Why?

  • because it improves posture
  • because it helps manage pain
  • because it improves performance and stamina

Have you tried lots of other treatments, therapies and exercises for poor posture and back pain that haven’t lasted or worked for you?  Do you want to learn remarkable tools and skills to get to the root of your poor posture and aches and pains?

The Alexander Technique provides tools, skills and an intelligent solution to living life a little more easily and a lot more consciously.

In this talk and interactive workshop you will discover the secret tools actors, performers, singers and musicians use to be more effective, present, productive, charismatic and confident in their respective professions.

About Lucy:

I came to the Alexander Technique aged 19 as a music student with stage fright in 1989.  I had regular and frequent lessons for 2 years which helped me enjoy my performances, improve my posture and regain my full 5’ 10”.   I had one-to-one lessons regularly over the next 10 years.  I trained to become a Teacher in 2000-2003 at Fellside, Cumbria Alexander Training in Kendal – I loved it!  I became taller, more confident and the life in me became more colourful and vibrant.

My core values are kind compassion, acceptance, support and fun.

Testimonials for Lucy:

“I’ve been doing the Alexander Technique with Lucy over the past few months and my posture has improved enormously.  I have a greater awareness of how my body functions and can recognise the signs of when I’m falling into bad habits.  Lucy has provided me with many useful tools on how to deal with this and consequently I feel more relaxed.”  Paul Tolton, Actor

“No pain in the night, no pain when I got up, no pain when I went for a run and no pain now!  It’s much more than I expected, so thank you.” Steve, Engineer
