About Cathie

Cathie first had Alexander Technique lessons whilst studying for a diploma in musical directing at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). She found them extremely interesting and beneficial, and after developing R.S.I. through using a computer and playing the piano, she decided to re-train as an A.T. teacher to learn more about what was causing these issues and to eventually help others. She qualified in 2008 from a three year, STAT recognised training course at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London.

Cathie Kidger

Cathie is an inspirational and subtle teacher. I have learned so much over the last year but the beauty of the way that Cathie teaches is that you don’t realise you are learning. I had given up hope of having a good posture and was resigned to a seemingly inevitable slow collapse over the years, but now I feel completely different. I’m on a journey and I look forward to each lesson.

I’m inquisitive and rather impatient, but now I am convinced that the Alexander Technique is not something you can teach yourself or pick up from a book; it requires experienced guidance and patience and Cathie really knows what she is doing. Whether you need some quick inspiration or seek a deep understanding, she is a perfect guide.
