Carolyn Nicholls: Teacher and Teacher Trainer of the Alexander Technique
I head the Brighton Alexander Technique College I have trained teachers in Brighton since 1990, prior to that I trained teachers in Melbourne (Australia)
What is the Alexander Technique? ‘The Alexander Technique is a method of self-help. Its purpose is to help people avoid doing things that are harmful to their general wellbeing. The method is unique because, unlike most systems that advise people what to do and how to do it, this teachers what not to do and how to prevent it. Thus the Technique requires, first of all, a practical demonstration, conveying the experience of what actions are wrong; and then clear instructions as to how they can be avoided.’ Walter Carrington 1st January 2004
I am proud to have been trained by Dilys and Walter Carrington. I worked intensively with Dilys after qualification and I can help you regain a sense of balance in your body and in your life. Alexander Technique is a unique form of personal neuromuscular re-education. It’s making the best use of yourself through a practical method of self observation and improvement. As a very experienced teacher I am happy to take pupils with considerable challenges and have taught people with scoliosis, ‘drop foot’ from back surgery, people with chronic pain condition as a result of injury or illness. I teach from my studio in Patcham. Lessons are £50, (£40 for students/low income). You can start by having one lesson to experience my gentle hands-on approach to your neuro-physical re-education. You can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 01273 278523.
I’m working on an audiobook of Body, Breath & Being- a new guide to the Alexander Technique. You can download an mp3 file of a semi-supine talk though here.
