About Cathie Kidger

Cathie Kidger

Cathie first had Alexander Technique lessons whilst studying for a diploma in musical directing at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). She found them extremely interesting and beneficial and, after developing R.S.I. through using a computer and playing the piano, she decided to retrain as an A.T. teacher to learn more about what was causing these issues and to eventually help others. She qualified in 2008 from a three year STAT recognised training course at the Constructive Teaching Centre in Holland Park, London.

Cathie is an inspirational and subtle teacher. I have learned so much over the last year but the beauty of the way that Cathie teaches is that you don’t realise you are learning. I had given up hope of having a good posture and was resigned to a seemingly inevitable slow collapse over the years, but now I feel completely different. I’m on a journey and I look forward to each lesson. I’m inquisitive and rather impatient, but now I am convinced that the Alexander Technique is not something you can teach yourself or pick up from a book; it requires experienced guidance and patience and Cathie really knows what she is doing. Whether you need some quick inspiration or seek a deep understanding, she is a perfect guide.
