Fumiaki is a native Japanese. He first came across the Alexander Technique over 25 years ago while studying acting in the US. He was fascinated by its holistic approach and its potential for performer training.
He came to the UK to complete an MA in Physical Theatre. His research in performer training naturally led him to train as an Alexander Technique teacher in London.
He has been teaching the Alexander Technique since 2003, both in private practice and in drama schools and universities in the UK, Japan and US. He is also an associate lecture at Plymouth University/Plymouth Conservatoire, where he teaches movement to theatre students.
Fumiaki has a diverse training background in mind-body work and spiritual practices, including Three Principles, Buddhist meditation, mindfulness, yoga, qi-gong, Tai-Chi, Feldenkrais, Aikido and more. He is also a teacher of Laban (a form of movement analysis) and has studied with many of the first generation teachers who trained with Rudolf Laban.
As a qualified Three Principles facilitator, I incorporate it into my Alexander Technique teaching to help people find freedom in their mind and body and realise their true potential.
Fumiaki is a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique. He is DBS checked and fully insured for the Alexander technique teaching and Three Principles facilitation.
The Alexander Technique is a subtle yet powerful way to restore the natural poise we have within.
Through teacher’s guidance, you become aware of your lifelong habits and release unnecessary tension in the body.
This process re-establishes proper alignment of the body, facilitates better coordination and enables the whole body to function more naturally.
This simple and subtle change in the way you use yourself can bring about profound benefits to both your mind and body.
People have Alexander Technique lessons for many reasons: back pain, neck and shoulder pain, tension head ache, RSI, or improving posture, music playing skills, horse riding, playing golf and the list goes on.
