Hello, I’m Joe Searby

I teach The Alexander Technique, a beautifully simple yet extraordinarily powerful method for change.
Its purpose is to help people avoid doing things that are harmful to their general wellbeing.
It is unique because unlike most systems that tell you what to do and how to do it The Alexander Technique teaches you what not to do and how to prevent it.
I am also trained to teach Jessica Wolf’s Art of Breathing: a synergy of the work of F.M.Alexander and Carl Stough. See the Art of Breathing section for more details.


The British Medical Journal has published some hugely important research proving the effectiveness of The Alexander Technique in relieving back pain

You can read the full article HERE

“One to one lessons in the Alexander Technique from registered teachers have long term benefits for patients with chronic back pain.”

Like The Alexander Technique this site is in a process of continuous change!

I’d like to be able to say I update this site often, but of course I don’t.

However, I always appreciate feedback. Thanks for visiting.

About Joe Searby

Joe had his first lessons in the Alexander Technique in 1983. After some years of lessons he decided to train as a teacher of the Technique and in 1995 he completed a three-year, full-time training with Walter and Dilys Carrington. Walter had trained with Alexander in the 1930s and was then F.M.’s assistant until Alexander died in 1955. Walter then took on the training of new teachers and continued to do this until his own death in 2005. In 2017 and 2018 Joe trained with Alexander teacher Jessica Wolf to teach her method of “The Art of Breathing”. Please see the Art of Breathing section for more information on this transformational modality.

What is Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a process for change towards ever-increasing health and well-being. It requires you to be an active participant in the process and to learn and practise the skills you are taught. Because of this it is not for everyone – more than ever people are looking for a “quick fix” for their problems. The Alexander Technique is not a quick fix. However, if you want something that is deeply meaningful and has the potential to transform you as a human being then give it a try!   Copyright © 2019 Joe Searby All rights reserved
