Stem Sessions

Think of a flower in bloom, heavy and needing support from the stem, now think of your body as the stem with your head perfectly balanced on top.

I have developed Stem Sessions with the aim of specifically looking at how to walk in order to alleviate strain on knee and hip joints or lower back.

A Stem Session is in two parts, part one is an indoor session where the Alexander Technique is explained, demonstrated and taught.

The second part is a practical session walking along the seafront with touch and guidance from me and includes a stop for tea and discussion!

Of course you don't have to be in pain to experience a Stem Session! Walking is done for enjoyment and is good exercise. Creative thought often occurs when walking.

This is what author John le Carre has to say about walking:

"I have a walking appetite just as I have other appetites, and am quite frustrated if it can't be answered on demand. Moving gets me unclogged in my head. I almost never make a note when I'm walking and usually forget the great lines I have composed, which s probably just as well. But I come home knowing that life is possible and even, sometimes, beautiful".

There is a maximum of ten people on each course, so it is a chance to get together with like-minded people. Not only will you learn how to walk in a much lighter, freer way, you will have fun along the way.


Stem Sessions take place in Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells and cost 20.00. Please contact me if you would like further information or to book a place.
