Alexander sessions have helped solve my hip problems so much that I have cancelled my pending operation. Looking back it seems strange, as two years ago I was unable to go for a walk without experiencing pain. Now I can walk as far as I like without giving it a thought. My riding has changed too.
The standard of top level eventing is getting ever higher, so we are always looking to improve our performance. In the dressage phase I’ve found that learning the Alexander Technique with Sally has taught me to make small, but vital, alterations in my posture and balance, enabling more effective riding with less conscious effort.
The Alexander Technique has parallels with training horses, so it is an ideal method for helping riders realise their potential and gain an extra edge.
