“I find the Alexander Technique very helpful in my work. Things happen without you trying. They get you to be light and relaxed. You must get an Alexander teacher to show it to you.”
“Through the Alexander Technique I was able to rehabilitate my running after 25 years of being unable to run through injuries, to the extent that I was able to set ten world records for veterans in 1982.”
Paul Collins, Canadian national marathon champion in 1949-1952
The purpose of the Trust is to bring to the general public, awareness and understanding of the Alexander Technique. The Trust also promotes research and study into all aspects of the Technique.
