About me

Jonathan Drake

I am medical graduate & worked first in health education. I completed the three year training to be an Alexander Technique Teacher in 1982 (MSTAT).

I have been in practice in Norwich, in the county of Norfolk in England, since 1988, giving private lessons and a wide range of introductory & specialist workshops for the general public and for public & private organisations.

My passion is a problem-solving approach to applying AT to everyday life. Because so many of us are in thrall to the computer, one focus has been on the challenge of coping with the ergonomic problems it presents.

I have written two books on AT: Thorsons Introductory Guide to the Alexander Technique, 1991 and The Alexander Technique in Everyday Life, 1996. The Alexander Technique Birth Book, 2006, co-authored with Ilana Machover, has just been re-issued.

And see the "resources" section for details of my recently-published e-book on rowing

For a number of years now I have taken a special interest in applying AT to improving fitness. I have found it helps prevent injury, and can make acquiring and maintaining fitness an absorbing & enjoyable experience.

I hold a British Rowing Level 2 certificate in Coaching Indoor Rowing and STA swimming certification.
