Running with ease

Runners, like other sportsmen and women, benefit greatly from learning good technique. The Alexander Technique encourages good balance and coordination. It has been described as both a training and a therapy. Gentle hands-on guidance and verbal explanations are used a series of individual sessions, tailor made to your needs:

  • Men or Women, all ages and ability, elite or beginner
  • One to one sessions
  • Rediscover the natural running ability you had as a young child
  • Reduces injuries caused by poor running style
  • Run more efficiently with less wasted effort
  • Improves speed and stamina
  • Reduces load and effort on the body
  • Improves balance and coordination
  • No special equipment required.


Through the Alexander Technique I was able to rehabilitate my running after 25 years of being unable to run through injuries, to the extent that I was able to set ten world records for veterans in 1982.
