Finding a good teacher of the Alexander Technique was my first step to acknowledging that now I am older my balance is of concern. I was also worried about slumping in chairs and reaching for support as I sat down. Just 3 lessons with Liana have made great changes in the way I feel and my self-consciousness about the way I am moving.
Although I had been taking and appreciating my Alexander Technique lessons with Liana for some time before I got pregnant, it was really as the belly weight began increasing day by day that I realised the full value of what I had been learning with her. Using the AT principles not only allowed me to keep up with my other two children but also became a joy to incorporate in my daily life, offering a freedom and ease of movement that I had not experienced before, even though I was now carrying around significantly extra weight.
Lessons with Liana are such a pleasure. The weekly hour with her patient yet expert guidance passes effortlessly and feels like a refreshing mini holiday. Absolutely an invaluable technique and lucky to have found such a great teacher.
I began my studentship with Liana after the recommendations of a friend who swore that the Alexander Technique could help with my distressed emotional state and unhealthy lifestyle. I will not claim that these feelings are completely behind me or that the Alexander Technique is solely responsible for all of my progress, but I do want to remark on the positive impact it has had on my life so far.
From the very first weeks I was able to remind myself to unfreeze from habitual positions while working or driving and then to send instructions to my body using only my thought in order to release tension in an area. Three months down the line my friends and family would comment on the improvement of my posture and that I was more “open” towards them. I experienced some unique body sensations, like improvements in my vision that presented colours with more clearance and vitality. In a few instances I had also been able to perceive with a deeper sense of understanding how Liana’s choreography of subtle movements was actually realigning bones and increasing the space for release in my joints. By the end of the first year I can tell apart which areas in my body hold unnecessary tension and have now ways to relax them. I’m also more conscious of how to bring myself to the present which has helped me recover much faster from downward spiralling.

Alexander technique is big for Tango. Tango teachers, would tell you how your posture should look like while dancing, but nobody teaches how to achieve it. Alexander technique brings your body naturally to a state where walking, running, dancing and seemingly simple things like sitting or staying are done with great ease. All these body movements improved significantly with me after taking classes with Liana. I would recommend Alexander technique classes to everybody willing to improve their life and learn how body and mind are connected.
