Better Posture – Less Pain – More Performance

Jane Staggs, Alexander Technique Teacher in Cambridge, UKI have been teaching Alexander Technique lessons in Cambridge for over 30 years. More recently, I teach Pilates matwork as well.

The Alexander Technique will improve your posture and movement which are the underlying causes of much back pain, neck pain, Repetitive Strain Injuries and  other musculo-skeletal problems. There is now research evidence that the Alexander Technique reduces chronic low back pain. See the research. Better posture and coordination will enhance performance in the arts, sport, and daily life.

You will learn skills which will help you feel better physically and mentally.  Good posture and graceful movement are more attractive as well as healthier.

LISTEN to an MP3 interview with me describing my teaching:

I have a special interest and expertise in:

  • Back, neck, shoulder pain
  • Postural problems
  • Repetitive Strain Injury
  • Functional applications ie sitting at a desk or sofa
  • Release of tension/stress
  • Foot problems
  • Fitness

“In the past, after I had been sitting for an hour or more, I would get up like an old person, stiff and with an aching back and legs.  Now, after Alexander lessons, I get up and walk off like a much younger person, and no aches and pains.”
-Robert, Cambridge

Pippa, a cellist, came back for a couple of refresher lessons 18 years after her course of lessons.  “Alexander gave me the ability to detach from the nerves and physical tension when playing, and that has stayed with me all this time.  It has made such a difference to my playing.”
