Children & Education

A child using a writing slope to draw

At school, children are faced with many new demands, such as sitting for longer periods at a desk, reading and writing. They can start to become ‘fixed’ and develop a tendency to slump, as well as using too much effort by trying hard to perform tasks such as holding a pen. If a child can maintain their natural ‘use’, they will be better equipped to respond to situations in a calm and clear manner as well as engaging the correct amount of muscular effort in whatever activity they are doing. This will hopefully prevent future problems like back pain, from occurring.

The Alexander Technique is NOT yoga or meditating, but learning about having a relaxed, happy back. It is also really fun!
