Ever wondered what The Alexander Technique is? Well here, Korina Biggs explains all about it!
Why learn the Alexander Technique?
The AT is a practice that enables you to become aware of how the way you move and carry yourself can effect your energy levels, your breathing and sense of ease.
It helps reduce unnecessary stress and tension and can help you find more pleasure in whatever you do.
How do you learn it?
Usually you meet in person with a qualified teacher who uses gentle guiding hands-on as well as verbal cues to bring more awareness and positive change. However in these socially distancing circumstances the teacher uses her observational and listening skills through the screen to be able to guide you.
Korina works with what you want to work with. It maybe that you get neck pain in front of a computer, or that you want to walk with more ease. It maybe that you want to play your musical instrument with less tension or run more lightly – the AT is a practice that you can apply to whatever you do.
What are the benefits?
Clients say they experience less pain and more ease, that their balance improves and that they feel calmer.
The AT is evidence based and research includes significant improvements for back pain, neck pain and balance. For more information on this evidence basis and in general go to www.alexandertechnique.co.uk

“I’ve struggled for years with my weight, from a young age I had always been overweight and unhappy with how I looked. After trying every diet out there I finally found a love for running and, together with eating right, I managed to lose 4 stone. That was in 2008 and since then, I have become more and more interested in nutrition and different forms of exercise.
This has driven a passion for health and fitness, that in 2015 I decided to change my career, I gave up my job as a manager in University administration and went back to the classroom to gain my personal training qualifications.
After a year with Premier training I qualified with a Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training and became the proud owner of ‘Wellsbeing Fitness’. I’m motivated by helping people like myself who really want to change their lifestyle and achieve their fitness goals in a sustainable way and truly believe that physical fitness and mental well being go hand in hand.”
