I’m Veronica Pollard

I first came across the Alexander Technique when I wanted to stop getting tension headaches and
neck problems.

Learning the technique gave me an appreciation of what I was doing to myself that created the pain as well as how I was putting myself wrong in some other areas of my life too!

I am a teacher trained by the ITM (Interactive Teaching Method Association).This means I have studied for four years and passed four written and one practical exam. I spent six months as a student teacher and graduated in 2003.

I am a member of the ITM Teachers' Association and have a BSc (hons) degree from the University of Bristol.

I have taught individuals, small groups and evening classes, as well as workshops and courses for
businesses, colleges and the local council. I have run workshops at festivals such as the Larmer Tree and the Big Green Gathering.

I have taught music students at the Royal Welsh College
of Music and Drama. I also taught students at the Musical Theatre School in Somerset, and dance students at Bristol Dance Centre.
