The Lessons

Carla Radford offers Alexander Technique lessons in Hornchurch, Elm Park, Emerson Park and surrounding areas.

After an Alexander lesson you can feel more balanced and poised, less anxious, more relaxed, refreshed and bursting with energy.

Lessons are suitable for all age groups although the Technique is not generally recommended for children under the age of eight years old.

One to One Lessons

Lessons are on a one to one basis, completely tailored to the individual. Each lesson lasts around one hour during which time Carla uses gentle, non-interfering hands-on techniques that will balance you up and guide you through everyday moments like sitting, standing, and walking, etc. You will be shown how to be aware of any bad habits which you have accumulated over the years.

You learn, via the principles of the Technique, to develop a greater self-awareness noticing any excessive tension you hold in your body and where it is allocated. Carla will also help you to direct your thinking in order to make the necessary changes mentally as well as physically.

"It gives us all the things we have been looking for in a system of physical education: relief from strain due to maladjustment, and consequent improvement in physical and mental health. Increased consciousness of the physical means employed to gain the ends proposed by the will and, along with this, a general heightening of consciousness on all levels."
Aldous Huxley - Educationalist and Writer
