Well-being at Work - Alexander Technique Lessons


The Alexander Technique is a simple but profound method of releasing physical, mental and emotional tension. Poor postural, mental and emotional habits accumulated over years can cause a build-up of tension which can affect the way we move, think and feel and this in turn can severely affect our quality of life.

Through observation, awareness and education of how the body and mind are designed to work, we can become aware of our own excessive tension. With increased awareness you can discover new ways of moving, thinking and feeling that put less strain on your body and mind.

The Alexander Technique is a powerful tool for personal development and self-awareness and it equips you with new skills to cope with life's demands. It teaches you to help yourself in improving how you move, perform, think and feel. It’s not therapy. It’s education.

A 30 minute lesson can be delivered at an employees workstation. A DSE risk assessment can also be completed during the lesson if the time allocated is increased to 50 mins.

Who will benefit

Any employee who wishes to learn the technique. Employees currently experiencing discomfort or pain are most likely to work at implementing the technique in their daily activities.


Up to 5 lessons can be delivered over a half-day on site. Contact Mary Murphy for further details. Mary Murphy
