Riding & Alexander Technique experience 
 
I re-embarked on Alexander Technique to help me deal with tension in my right shoulder. I was also aware, from some sessions a number of years ago and having heard about Alexander Technique during a talk by Charles Harris FBHS, that there might be other benefits, particularly to my riding. 
 
Riding for me is a hobby although with a sometime competitive edge! Having largely banished the shoulder tension, Tanya has helped me make real improvement to my riding. 
 
I am more able to sit in balance with my horses (each with very different movement), maintain a soft but active contact and remain soft through my back and pelvis to absorb the movement whilst not collapsing through my waist. As any rider will know, this doesn’t happen all the time and not always all together, but when it does it’s possible to understand what’s meant by harmony between horse and rider. It’s magical and what we all strive for.

The main thought that comes to mind of how the Alexander Technique has helped my riding is that since I am riding with an awareness of aiming to help the horse work towards self carriage, then it seems helpful to aim to work towards a sustainable self carriage in myself. Alexander helps me to remember to work on my own aspects too.

Thanks so much for the photos Claire. They are a great reminder for me of our session. I have been doing my lying down practice and having lovely times with Ulisses. Look forward to your next visit .  
Thank you so much for sending those photos Claire. Kind of you to do that and fantastic for me to see that I could look like that on a horse!
