WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Dr Azzy Calderbank, GP

I decided to have Alexander Technique lessons with Tara in the hope that it would help to alleviate muscular tension and pain in my neck and shoulders. I found Tara to be a very wise, experienced and patient teacher who was able to guide me really well even though the majority of our sessions were online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I felt instantly at ease in Tara's presence and learnt loads from our sessions. My neck and shoulder pains are a distant memory! I would thoroughly recommend Alexander Technique sessions with Tara to anyone else who is experiencing similar issues.

Dr Michael Harris, Psychiatrist

I started Alexander Lessons with Tara to work on my terrible posture which has bugged me for years.I had tried in vain to correct this by forcing myself to ‘stand up straight’ (usually after catching view of myself in profile in the mirror).I had a vague understanding that Alexander technique could help but wasn’t sure how.I assumed that better posture was something that came from increased core strength or sustained effort.Thankfully this misconception was quickly dispelled. Correcting my posture would be a lot easier than I thought but it wouldn’t change overnight. The key was in a conscious ‘ungripping’ and trusting the spine to align itself and letting go of my misguided attempts to strain it this way or that.I have been having regular lessons for several months and it is definitely something I plan to continue for the foreseeable future.The classes combine aspects of yoga and mindfulness which I find incredible relaxing and meditative. My stress levels have reduced!Body posture is a form of nonverbal communication and I have come to realise that this communication is not just with those we meet - but also with ourselves.I feel more confident and at ease with a posture that is more confident and at ease.Tara is a fantastic teacher who is clearly very passionate about what she does.Her teaching style is gentle, uncomplicated and fun. I recommend Alexander Technique generally and wholeheartedly recommend Tara as a teacher!

Excellent, patient teacher. Knowledgeable. Recommended.
