The Teacher

Carla Radford is a Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (S.T.A.T.) qualified Alexander Technique teacher offering lessons in Elm Park, Hornchurch, Emerson Park, Romford, Upminster and Cranham.

Carla's experience is widespread; she has taught people of all ages and from all walks of life; from the young to the elderly, from actors to sufferers of ME.

Always respectful, Carla acts with the utmost discretion and is incredibly passionate about helping people maximize their physical well being and quality of life and helping them to achieve the results that she knows can literally change their lives.

Carla's route to becoming a teacher of the Alexander Technique began when she started taking lessons in 1999. Having spent many years suffering from physical problems caused by excessive tensions and anxieties she turned to Yoga, which offered some relief. However, in her mind there was still something missing that would help overcome her difficulties, and this led her to try the Technique.

On applying the Technique's principles to the way she was using her body, Carla was finally able to release her tensions and reduce her anxieties. By consciously thinking about her posture, movement and reactions she gradually became able to move with a sense of balance and poise and started to feel more confident in herself.

The Technique inspired Carla so much that she decided to study it in more detail. A three year training course with S.T.A.T. ensued which saw Carla qualify in 2005. Now she shares her beneficial experience with others and having come through from a life of pain and tension into a daily experience of calm, relaxation and confidence, she is in the best position to help others to do so.

"Alexander established not only the beginnings of a far reaching science of the apparently involuntary movements we call reflexes, but a technique of correction and self control which forms a substantial addition to our very slender resources in personal education."
George Bernard Shaw, Writer, Nobel Prize winner for Literature.
