Improve your sense of poise Understand the true meaning of posture
My name’s Kate Minogue and I teach Alexander Technique from my home in Lewes. These friendly one-to-one lessons, suitable for all ages, involve a mixture of talking and gentle touch. You learn how to shake off old movement patterns and responses to stress. You start to move more easily, look more poised, and feel less weighed down. Best of all, you begin to take responsibility for your own well-being. Contact me to book a full-length half-price taster lesson. Or you can simply ask a question; I'm always happy to talk about Alexander Technique!
Less can be more
You're busy, so do less! Alexander Technique is about peeling away years of accumulated habit, so you can regain forgotten ways of moving. You don't perform any exercises; you simply learn how to get away with doing less. You'll learn to choose your responses; it's never too late to change the way you react to a demand on your time or energy.
Enjoy being active at any age
Find out how to do what you want to do with less risk of injury or developing aches and pains. One of my former roles was as an exercise instructor. I used to urge my class to squeeze, tighten, and push harder. Now I take a different view, focussing on quality, not quantity, and looking for space and length in a well co-ordinated body. Analyse how you move when exercising and become more balanced and efficient. Look after yourself, so gardening doesn't give you a bad back. Avoid becoming hunched up when hiking.
Muscular tension is the usual human response to any form of stress. This is usually inappropriate and unhelpful, and instead of meeting your deadline you'll just end up with a headache or stiff shoulders. Alexander Technique works with the whole person and you can apply it to everything you do. Less tension is better when using a computer, when driving the car, and even when chopping vegetables.
People use Alexander Technique to
prevent injury, especially when playing sport
improve balance, stability, and coordination
support pregnancy and childbirth

feel more confident when speaking in public
improve performance, e. g playing instruments, singing, dancing, acting
Kath, Practice Nurse, said:
"I had about 12 sessions in Alexander Technique with Kate and am very happy to recommend her. Kate taught me a lot about posture, release of tension, and co-ordination of mind and body. She is very knowledgeable and followed up the sessions with useful handouts. I found her calm and gentle approach very helpful." Kath, GP Practice Nurse
