Alexander Technique and fitness

Running

More than a hundred years ago, Alexander pointed out the risks of exercising. His main concern was that if we don’t move well in our everyday activities, doing exercises may not produce lasting benefit and may cause injury. While his arguments are still valid, evidence for the potential benefits of exercising is now overwhelming.

Recently, Alexander teachers such as Steven Shaw (swimming), Malcolm Balk (running and fitness), Roy Palmer (sports) and Patrick Pearson (rowing) have pioneered developments in the improvement of fitness.

Exercising can be pleasurable & injury-free with the help of Alexander principles. AT can be applied to all forms of exercise, including:

  • walking and running
  • swimming
  • use of the rowing machine and rowing
  • gym activities
  • Pilates, yoga & T’ai-chi

I hold a British Rowing Level 2 certificate in Coaching Indoor Rowing.
