Invest a little time into how you look after your body now and it will help you reap the benefits in the future.
This is where the Alexander Technique comes in. Because there’s no effort involved, you don’t need to hit the gym or pound the pavement to enjoy the benefits – just a simple weekly session to boost your posture, well-being and joie de vivre.
It’s never too late to start learning the Alexander Technique. In fact, one of my most regular clients started in his late eighties – and he just loves how it make his golfing easier.
“Good posture not only improves our general sense of wellbeing (on the simplest level, it relaxes muscles and improves breathing and circulation), it also makes us appear taller and more elegant. And as every beauty editor will tell you, improved circulation helps to give us a more translucent complexion, whiter eyes, shinier hair, stronger nails and so on.” Financial Times.

Most of my clients come for sessions from all over Cheshire. Some pay a little extra to have home visits and benefit from private, one-to-one sessions in the privacy of their own home. Everyone ends up feeling taller, slimmer, less stressed and full of energy, ready to take life on with a smile. I’d love to add your name to theirs, so if you’d like to be Fabulous and Over 50… Book your Alexander Technique session:
