The Alexander Techniquewith Jill Payne


Welcome: I'm Jill Payne, a fully qualified and experienced Alexander Technique teacher based in Beckenham, SE London. I offer one-to-one lessons and introductory workshops for groups. 

Skill for life: The Technique teaches you how to make the best of yourself and improve the way you move and function. It is a simple set of skills that can greatly improve:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Posture
  • Mobility
  • Balance
  • Co-ordination
  • Ease of movement
  • Breathing
  • Stress
  • Confidence
  • Awareness
  • General functioning
  • A stable sense of yourself

Covid-19: During the current measures I am not teaching in person just yet, but you can take lessons with me online with Zoom. I allow 60 minutes for these lessons and you get your first two for the price of one!

Clear safety measures are in place for when I resume teaching in person and I will discuss these with everyone beforehand.
We must maintain security and safety for ourselves, and one another, in the current crisis.

Try an online lesson: Online sessions can be booked seven days a week from  10am - 5pm).  Email or call me to discuss a good time slot for you.
Concessions may be available in some circumstances. Please contact me for a chat about your needs.
