Alexander Technique in
Welcome to the Westminster Alexander Centre
Located in the heart of London's West End, with easy access from Leicester Square, Charing Cross and Embankment Stations, the Centre was opened by John Hunter in 1993. We are within walking distance of Soho, Whitehall and Bloomsbury.
We offer a range of options for learning the Alexander Technique: one-to-one lessons, introductory courses and themed group classes in our quiet and friendly Central London location.
How can it help me?
A tense body and a highly strung nervous system often go hand in hand, making it difficult to let go. Alexander work can break the vicious circle by giving you a new experience of a relaxed body and a calm, quiet mind. Gradually you will learn how to bring this about on your own and how to avoid the build-up of stress during a busy day.
Recent randomised trials of the efficacy of lessons in the Alexander technique have shown it is effective in alleviating both low back and neck pain.
Music and Drama academies have long recognised the benefits of Alexander work for performing artists. Apart from dealing with or avoiding the pain and discomfort often associated with performance, the improved awareness which results from lessons impacts on both rehearsal and performance.
