Alexander Technique Courses for Health & Wellbeing in Middlewich, Cheshire
Course Title: Looking after ourselves better as we grow older
This 5-week course can help you learn how to use your body and mind more effectively to release unhelpful tension, reduce pain and rebalance your body naturally, helping to restore ease, poise and freedom of movement.
Why learn the Alexander Technique?
As we age, our mobility, balance and coordination can become compromised. Walking, carrying things and going up stairs can become too much of a challenge and we can gradually become more and more sedentary. As we become less active, our risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia and other chronic health conditions increases. By keeping active, we can remain as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
The Alexander Technique teaches thoughtful and non-strenuous movement, enabling us to learn new ways to move, bend, sit and stand with more freedom in the joints and more lightness and ease in the body.
