The Means Whereby

It ain't what you do ... it's the way that you do it



A never ending journey of self discovery

The Alexander Technique literally changed my life - it gave me the tools to become aware of what I was doing, how I was doing it then a way of consciously choosing to do something different.

It has become the foundation of everything I do.

During my three year teacher training I quickly realised that all my years of being a gym bunny had only succeeded in reinforcing my postural habit patterns - oops!

After qualifying I wanted to exercise in a more mindful way and went on to train as a pilates teacher which I taught for 18 years.

I do daily maintenance pilates as well as Miranda Bass' Stripped Back routine which I have adapted for the physio ball.
Pilates gives me physical and mental discipline

Through pilates I discovered Nia which gives me cardio vascular work as well as allowing me to express my creativity.

I find it interesting that FM Alexander, Joseph Pilates, Debbie Rosas and Carlos Aya Rosas all developed their individual techniques through personal experimentation - their own journey of self healing.

They are all saying the same thing - 'it ain't what you do ... it's the way that you do it'

In the Alexander Technique we call this 'the means whereby'

Come and join me on a journey of self discovery ......
