Aisling Morgan is an experienced teacher of the Alexander Technique. She first engaged with this work when she was a final year BA music student at the University of Limerick back in 2005. She was instantly drawn to this holistic approach and undertook a research thesis on the benefits of the Alexander Technique for musicians and performing artists as part of her Masters in Traditional Irish Music Performance. Following this she was employed by the University of Limerick to facilitate weekly performance skills classes based on the Alexander Technique for BA music students which she continued for almost four years.

Aisling graduated as a teacher of the Alexander Technique in 2011 in Moycullen Co. Galway and since then she has worked consistently with individuals and groups in both Ireland and Australia, attending with various tension, stress and anxiety related issues. She has also engaged in further training in a specialised version of the Alexander Technique known as LearningMethods which helps to make learning and application easier and more effective.

Aisling runs her private practice from Galway city and is also currently teaching at the Alexander Technique Teacher Training Course in Moycullen, Co. Galway.

My approach to teaching the Alexander Technique focuses on the individual and their unique experiences and interpretations. My perspective is that everybody is the expert on themselves. I offer a non-judgemental space and have a deep respect for every person I work with. Whether you are suffering from chronic pain or debilitating anxiety, I can support you in the process of exploring the root causes of your symptoms. For some people, this may be best done very quietly using very gentle 'hands on' work and practicing mindfulness. For others, a lesson may be more active, practicing and exploring conscious movement in specific activities and for others the lesson may be more discussion based with a focus on addressing some of the 'mental' habitual patterns that often ultimately lead to the 'physical' symptoms. For many people lessons with me include a combination of these approaches depending on the student's preferences.
