Seán Carey PhD started taking lessons in the Alexander Technique as part of his rehabilitation and recovery from a motorcycle accident in which his right leg and foot were badly broken. He became so fascinated with the process that he went on to train as a teacher qualifying in 1986.
Seán is co-author of four critically acclaimed books on the technique - 'The Alexander Technique' with John Nicholls; 'Explaining the Alexander Technique' and 'Personally Speaking' with Walter Carrington; and 'Alexander Technique: the Ground Rules' with Marjory Barlow. His latest books are 'Alexander Technique in Everyday Activity: Improve how you sit, stand, walk, work and run' meant for a wider audience, and 'Think More, Do Less: Improving your teaching and learning of the Alexander Technique with Marjory Barlow' which was written specifically for Alexander Technique teachers, trainees and advanced students. Both books are published by HITE.
Seán has worked on five Society of the Alexander Technique (STAT)-approved teacher training courses in London. He has also written about the technique for 'Athletics Weekly', 'TalkBack' and 'The Irish Times'.
