About your teacher

Susie Baker MSTAT

I was introduced to the Alexander Technique sixteen years ago thanks to Malcolm Balk. Malcolm is a Canadian Alexander teacher and Running Coach who inspires runners to achieve their goals with more ease and less injury. As a keen recreational runner, I was pleased with the improvements, and decided to find out how Alexander lessons could help me in other ways.

At the time my job involved lots of foreign travel and I suffered from some twinges in my lower back from carrying heavy bags onto planes. After having AT lessons the twinges disappeared.

In 2008, I enrolled at the Bristol Alexander School and after three years of full-time training graduated in July 2011.

I teach the Alexander Technique from home in Bristol BS8, at Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork  and at Bradley Stoke Physio. I offer special sessions for runners  and organise workshops and masterclasses in Bristol with top international coaches including Art of Running workshops with Malcolm Balk.

As a recreational runner, I do most of my running on local trails.  I am also a keen wild swimmer, competing in the bi-annual world winter swimming championships and have completed several sprint distance triathlons.

I am passionate about helping people of all ages discover how the Alexander Technique can improve their health and wellbeing. I have a particular interest in applying the Technique to sport and fitness.

As a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (MSTAT) I have completed a recognised full-time course in the teaching of AT and abide by the highest standards of professional practice.
