Offering ITM Alexander Technique
FM Alexander's work has been around for a long time - well over 100 years - and in that time has helped countless people change and improve their lives and work towards achieving their full potential. In these sessions, you will explore the basic ideas, principles and discoveries of FM Alexander and through a practical, flexible and fun approach, learning how to apply the ideas to everyday life. In the ITM approach to teaching, lessons are given in the context of a group, so that each participant not only has a one-to-one interaction with the teacher, but also the opportunity to observe lessons, providing a wide and enriched learning experience. By using a combination of questions, reasoning and hands-on interactions you will begin to see that just by making a different decision about how to move, you can find more ease, more poise and better co-ordination.
In addition to being an Alexander Technique teacher, Jenny is also a musician and instrumental teacher and has worked as a horn player, teacher and conductor for the past 30 years. She started having Alexander lessons because she always had a stiff neck and shoulders and wanted to play and conduct with less discomfort. Jenny's first experience of the ITM approach to teaching was at the summer workshop in Cirencester in 2004. The many simple, constructive and life-enhancing changes that she experienced persuaded her to take the four-year teacher training course under the directorship of Dr Don Weed. Jenny certified as a teacher in 2012 and runs a teaching practice in Cheltenham.
