4 Chapel Lane
I am an Alexander Technique teacher of 30 years' experience based in Wilmslow, Cheshire and Manchester (close to Manchester Airport, near Hale Barns, Altringham, Knutsford, Macclesfield and Cheadle).
In addition to my private practice, I have been involved in the training and the supervision of new teachers, and for several years I was the assistant director of the Manchester training school for teachers.
I offer a free consultation to help you decide if lessons in the Alexander Technique could be the help that you are looking for, and if I am the right teacher for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Peter Bloch trained as a teacher of the Alexander Technique with Walter Carrington (who was trained by Alexander in the 1930s) at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London. For many years, both before and after his training, he studied extensively with almost all of the surviving teachers who had trained with F.M. Alexander himself.
Peter is a highly experienced teacher of the Alexander Technique, and has had a busy private teaching practice for 30 years in London, Manchester and Cheshire. He has experience of working with people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
Peter has been involved in the training and supervision of Alexander Technique teachers, and for five years was the assistant director of the Manchester training course for teachers. For several years he taught the Alexander Technique at the Royal Northern College of Music and for many years he taught at the Wilmslow Guild and at the Knutsford WEA.
The Alexander Technique is an intelligent approach to the changing of habits of thought and movement. In lessons, you learn how to carry out everyday activities in a new way - one that is freer and easier than you probably ever thought possible.
Lessons in the Alexander Technique reduce days of pain by an average of 86% in patients with both chronic and recurrent back pain, even a year after lessons have been completed, according to a major study recently published in the British Medical Journal.
You can find both a simple and a more detailed introduction to the Alexander Technique on my website.
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
