The Alexander Technique in action
Welcome to BodyNature Alexander Technique, located in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park in Devon. I’m Charlie Loram and I offer professional tuition in the Alexander Technique, a practical, clinically proven, self-help method which has been helping people over the last 120 years restore their natural postural health and effortless movement for overall health, fitness and wellbeing.
"We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bone." Henry David Thoreau, writer
People come to the Alexander Technique to naturally overcome:
- Back, neck and joint pain
- Muscle tension and stiffness
- Poor posture
- Breathing and vocal problems
- Anxiety and stress-related conditions
People use the Technique to naturally:
- Improve performance and prevent injury
- Develop ease and elegance in movement
- Improve balance, stability and coordination
- Change conditions that stop them enjoying a happy, healthy life.
I offer individual Alexander Technique lessons for those wanting to re-learn how their body is designed to function - beautifully, naturally, effortlessly - and how to work with this design rather than against it. My clinic is in Chagford.
For those looking for an intelligent, body-aware and fun approach to life-long fitness I also offer coaching sessions and group classes in running (The Art of Running) and swimming (Shaw Method Swimming) at various locations throughout Devon. By using the principles of the Alexander Technique as our foundation we are able to transform these activities into an art form and life-skill for maintaining the postural and movement integrity and strength of our human design.
