- By acquiring greater skills of self-observation, you can learn to recognise and eliminate unwanted or unnecessary habits of movement or tension which are getting in the way of a consistent and ideal swing.
- Consciously or not, we often try to actively hit the ball where we want it to go. Alternatively, you can focus on allowing a natural whole-body coordination and freedom, using the club as an extension of yourself, in order to make effective contact with the ball and therefore achieve a more satisfactory result.
- Less is more. The harder you try, the worse your game gets. Have you ever noticed how detrimental trying to get certain aspects of your swing right actually make it worse? How practising thoughtfully on the driving range, but then letting go of those thoughts and just allowing it to happen is more effective? That’s not a coincidence.
- With the Alexander Technique, you will learn a better interaction with your whole self, body and mind as one, to achieve greater coordination, balance, and lighter, freer movement in day-to-day life. This translates directly into your self-interaction on the golf course as well.
- By gradually improving your natural balance, coordination, and movement, and getting out of your own way more often, you will be less prone to injury or time off.
Lessons are now available at Finchley Golf Club, so you can combine your Alexander Technique lessons with a round of golf at a wonderful course!
