Walking and the Alexander Technique

However, you can apply the Alexander Technique to your walking to improve the way you move.

We all have different gaits, but sometimes we can make hard work of walking, simply because it’s a learned habit. For example, putting our feet down heavily, or  stiffening the arms (unconsciously) which in turn stiffens the legs.

From seasoned walkers to those of us who like the occasional stroll, the Alexander Technique can be of real benefit to us all.
