Winter in England is rubbish, fact. It lasts for most of the year, and the chances of going anywhere remotely near a beach are few and far between. But, on the upside when the sun does come out its a national event, and everybody wants to look their best for it.
Short of nonstop exercise and dieting, there isnt much that you can do to prepare for that glimmer of sunlight. Although one secret loads of celebrities use is the Alexander Technique, which is a way to encourage your body to return to its natural poise, rather than the slouched pose most of us have adopted over the years.
The Alexander Technique is a favourite amongst actors and musicians alike, and has been used by the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Robin Williams, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Hilary Swank, Hugh Jackman, Victoria Beckham and Sting. If it works for the Hollywood A listers, then it could definitely work for us mere mortals.
One great place to learn the Alexander Technique is with Susanna Scouller at the Pimlico Centre in London. Susanna discovered the technique after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis; doctors couldnt offer much to ease the pain, so she explored the world of complementary health such as yoga and massage, until she was turned on to the Alexander Technique by a friend. So amazed was she by the results, Susanna decided to become a teacher of the technique so that she could help others to help themselves. She now teaches students from all walks of life such as a singer, a martial arts instructor, a beauty therapist and a fitness instructor. Her lessons are fun and can make a great difference in both looking and feeling amazing, without the need for crash dieting.
Theres no better time like the present to take up the Alexander Technique and get ready to hit the beach.
