Jill Payne BA MSTAT In the mid-1990's I was suffering from debilitating stress-related illness. I had constant pain from knee injuries and RSI, and pain in my back, neck and limbs. Chronically fatigued and clinically depressed, I was too ill to live a normal life. The Alexander Technique was the solution I found. The gentle touch of my teacher's hands guided my aching body back into balance and I began to feel better in every way. By releasing chronic tensions I found that my health and state of mind improved dramatically, and they continue to do so. This experience inspired me to become an Alexander teacher and I completed the three-year training in July 2002. Since then I have been teaching full-time, giving training seminars for other teachers and helping my own students to discover the life-changing benefits for themselves. Life puts pressure on us all but the Alexander Technique teaches you how to make the best of yourself. Qualifications: In 2002 I completed the three year teacher training course accredited by The Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) www.stat.org.uk and I have enhanced CRB status for work with adults, children and vulnerable adults. I was trained by a protégé of FM Alexander himself, and I continue to broaden and improve my skills and knowledge with regular post-graduate training.

The Alexander Technique is a learned skill which improves health, balance and co-ordination and is a practical approach to stress relief and mindful awareness. It reduces tension and joint pain and is a long term solution to back pain (BMJ 2008). This gently-paced course uses explanation, guided activities, discussion and lying down to explore the principles involved.
