Change Your Posture, Change Your Life
The Alexander Technique

to Saturday Mar 31, 2018
Poor posture is very common and can be directly responsible for a multitude of health problems. Many people think it can improved by “sitting up straight” or “pulling the shoulders back”, but nothing could be further from the truth, as this just makes things worse. Instead, the Alexander technique releases unconscious muscular tension throughout your body that has accumulated over many years of stressful living, helping you re-discover the free and natural posture you had as a child.
You will learn new ways of moving while performing everyday tasks, discovering ways of sitting, standing and walking that put less strain on the bones, joints and muscles, thus making your body work more efficiently. Since our physical state also affects our mental one, the benefits can extend into many areas of life.

He has appeared on BBC I & RTE 1 and been featured in many newspapers and magazines. Richard travels widely, giving talks and presenting courses on the Alexander Technique, as well as being the director of Ireland's only Alexander Teacher Training College.
