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.

Alexander Technique: Awareness and Change
The Alexander Technique is a subtle yet powerful tool that changes the
balance of tensions in your body and mind. So if Covid has left you
feeling low, overwhelmed or unwell, this weekend will give you an uplift
and a new perspective. We use a variety of meditative and practical
methods to promote external awareness of your environment and internal
awareness of your self. This gives you the opportunity to recognise your
unhelpful habits of behaviour and response and to choose something new.
The methods are yours to take away from the weekend to continue your
process of change.
For your safety social distancing will be observed and hands-on contact
from the teacher may not be possible.
Residential price: £495.00

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, hands-on work, discussion and lying down to explore the principles involved. Please bring comfortable clothing.
