My talks will reveal how every aspect of our lives, at work, rest, or play is governed by our habitual use in movement and thinking.

It will provide you with an understanding of how seemingly innocent habits over time become harmful and how we tend to create not just our own, but also copy and mimic others during our development from childhood into adulthood.

There is now an ever greater need to teach children and adults how to carry out their daily activities without unnecessary muscular tension, considering the amount of time we spend on our laptops, mobiles, etc, which can result in back, neck pains, migraines and many other health issues. Many of these common discomforts can slowly lead to psychological distress and psychological distress can gradually lead to poor motivation, low self esteem and depression.

We can conquer many modern times challenges, if we are prepared to learn to recognise and change these undesirable habits.

he Alexander Technique will teach you how to sit, stand, walk and talk with ease. It will help you to avoid unnecessary muscular tension and strains in all your daily activities. It will teach you how to free yourself from the undesirable reactions to challenging situations in life, so that you can once again experience the freedom of movement and thinking nature intended.

The first part of my talk is theoretical and will explore Alexander’s scientific discoveries. He was truly one of the great modern pioneers who understood the importance of the psycho-physical unity, treating the bodymind as a unit and the impact harmful use has on the way we feel and move.

The second part is practical. We will explore how to learn to move to our best mechanical advantage, develop a better understanding of anatomy and experiment with how to inhibit the unconscious habits that impedes our best functioning.

“Change involves carrying out an activity against the habit of life".

"You translate everything, whether physical, mental or spiritual, into muscular tension." F. M. Alexander

About Angelique Swallow

I'm an Alexander Technique teacher who feels passionately about sharing the knowledge and understanding of FM Alexander’s scientific discoveries.

Through my talks in the UK and abroad, I promote better awareness of the many benefits the Alexander Technique can provide, not only to the individual but also to society.

During the past few years, I have implemented an Alexander Technique curriculum for further Education training courses and I strongly believe that the Alexander Technique can provide a way forward for human development and evolution.

My talks are suitable for:

  1. Small or large organisations with an interest in understanding how harmful habits can affect the way we think and move.
  2. Corporations to demonstrate how AT can help raise workplace moral, improve productivity and reduce absenteeism.
  3. Organisations who are involved in educating children and adults.
  4. Schools/Children from the age of 11 onward to demonstrate how good and harmful habits will affect their future development.

I like to think that my talks are not just informative, but also entertaining and visual.
