Alison Marsden

Alison trained with the  Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique in Kendal, Cumbria and has been teaching since 2001. She has also trained as a Reflexologists with the Association of Reflexologists, Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance Professionals,  and specialises in Pregnancy and Childbirth qualifying as a Doula and in Eutokia. Before her training she worked in the computer industry and initially came across the Alexander Technique through back pain.

She has always had a love of movement and wanted to be a dancer as a child but suffered from digestive pain and was unable to pursue this dream. In her early twenties she suffered from back pain and in her journey to getting better came across the Alexander Technique. Since her mid twenties she has applied her Alexander Technique and Yoga knowledge to improving her quality of movement and running style. She now teaches people how to regain the joy of movement without the need of pain killers. 

She also has a love for cycling, gardening, and cooking. Through her natural love of cooking she runs cookery demonstrations and developed a routine to help maintain her digestive health which she now teaches on her Re-balancing Your Diet Courses along with the concept of Life Style Nutrition.

With her family of two boys she has developed an interest with teaching the Alexander Technique to children both in and out of school. This type of work really inspires Alison to create fun ways of learning both for adults and children, helping people learn in an easy way, feeding their confidence and spirit.
