Running and the Alexander Technique
With the Ealing Half Marathon rapidly approaching, many of Bridge to Health’s clients are gearing up to meet the challenge. So how can the Alexander Technique help?

The Alexander Technique is all about economy of movement so is a valuable tool for any runner. If you only put into your running what you require and no more then you can direct your energy into running faster and for longer. Being efficient, smooth and effortless in activity can help prevent injuries caused by repetitive movements and can transform the gait of anyone from the occasional jogger to the seriously competitive.

Above all, the Alexander Technique is about thinking in relation to movement. If you develop the mental discipline to move in the most effective way possible, you can reduce the risk of strain and injury, go faster and for longer and increase your enjoyment.
