What People Say…..
“In my forties, after decades of office work, I started suffering from occasional but regular bouts of back ache, neck ache and RSI. I went to the doctor, had X-rays, physiotherapy, read back ache books, did exercises, swimming, acupuncture, changed my pillow and took up yoga. I fell in love with yoga and it certainly improved my back and neck and made my problems less frequent, but it didn’t cure me.
I wondered if the Alexander Technique was the answer and tried to learn the technique from a book, but my progress was very slow. Finally, I decided to have some hands-on Alexander lessons and these lessons were the most amazing revelation. It was a sea change compared with trying to learn the technique from a book. Caroline is a wonderful teacher and I made exciting progress and interesting discoveries in every lesson.
The lessons cured my back, neck and RSI but more than that, the lessons improved my life in other unexpected ways. Please, please, please, book some lessons with Caroline and let the Alexander technique transform your life too.” BL. Executive.

IT’S WORTH INVESTIGATING:
As someone who works at a computer all day, I have recently begun to get an aching back and shoulders, probably as a result of bad posture. I’d heard about the Alexander Technique from a friend and so when I heard about the Introductory course run by Caroline Dale, I thought it was worth investigating.
After completing the course of four group lessons, I cannot recommend Caroline as a teacher highly enough. There was a mix of people on the course, and she prompted some thought-provoking and stimulating discussion based on our expectations and observations. This was balanced with practical work. Caroline worked with different people each week to demonstrate the principles of the Alexander Technique being applied so that we could really grasp how they are of benefit. It was fascinating to observe, and motivating to feel the difference when I was the person she worked with.
I enjoyed the sessions so much that I am following them up with some individual lessons to further benefit from the advantages I think the Alexander Technique can bring. CP
WE MADE SUBTLE SHIFTS:
Caroline is an excellent teacher who thoroughly, and patiently, guided our small group through the basic principles and background of what the Alexander technique is. She taught us how it developed so that, with understanding, we could make subtle, conscious shifts in our everyday movement and thinking.
The course is a solid foundation for understanding the basics (which are essential). I will be going back for individual session with Caroline so she can show me where I need to improve my incorrect habits and I can practice these in my daily life.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to know more about the Alexander technique and how it can improve your wellbeing. KD
