What my students say

I started having Alexander lessons because of chronic knee, neck and shoulder pain from sitting at my desk for long hours. Not only has the Alexander Technique helped ease the pains, it has brought me much more. My breathing, posture and quality of sleep has improved, as well as my singing and yoga. I am better able to cope with work related stress. Jackie is passionate about the Technique, and genuinely cares for her students. Taking lessons with her is the best thing I have done in a long time”

Alexander lessons help me cope with emotional and physical demands of being a nurse. I feel calmer and less exhausted after long shifts, and the Technique has improved my confidence and sense of well being. I leave lessons feeling calm but energised.”

Sharon Wyatt

By applying the Technique to running, I can now adopt a more upright position, giving me flexibility in my knees and lightness in my step. In lessons I have learned to move more freely, and I even improved my time from last year’s London Marathon.”

Jonathan Cook

I decided to take Alexander lessons when I had been diagnosed with arthritis in my neck. Jackie was recommended by a friend and I have been taking lessons for the last eighteen months. Jackie is a wonderful teacher: my posture has totally altered and I am no longer in pain. The technique and Jackie’s personal calmness and insight have been enormously beneficial. I have recommended the Alexander Technique to many of my friends and if you live sufficiently close to Jackie, then you are very lucky because I cannot imagine a finer practitioner”

Having suffered with back pain and bad posture for over ten years, due to scoliosis, my specialist recommended I try the Alexander Technique. After a few lessons, my pain eased, and has now disappeared. My posture continues to improve and I am becoming more upright.”

The Alexander Technique has enabled me to be more aware of myself and my surroundings, so that I am both relaxed and active in whatever I am doing, whether sitting at my desk, dancing or simply having conversations. My posture has improved so much that even my busy office colleagues have noticed. I look forward to every lesson with Jackie, and each time I discover something new. I walk home after my lessons feeling uplifted.”

Harriet Eastman

Alexander lessons have made an impact on my back pain and the way I live my life. The Alexander Technique is more than a quick fix. I learned to understand the concept of slowing down – stopping – thinking things through. I’m much more comfortable in my own skin and that feels absolutely fantastic.”

Michelle Madden

I no longer suffer neck or shoulder pains which were persistent problems. The Technique has dramatically improved my posture and eliminated the awkwardness I used to feel about myself, which has led to a more confident manner professionally and socially. Lessons are held in an environment that enables you to relax, and you are immediately put at ease by Jackie.”
