Alexander Lessons in Norwich with Chie Cross

About Chie

I was born in Tokyo in 1961, and began competitive long-distance swimming while a student at Tokyo Women's College of Physical Education, where I completed a bachelor of education degree in 1984. I then taught swimming first as a PE teacher at a Japanese high school and later as an instructor at a private sports club. A full teaching member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique since 2001, I was a regular visiting teacher at STAT teacher training schools in Maidenhead and Oxford. I became aware of the Shaw Method of swimming through Mike's brother Ian. While working for Ian's business, Swimming Without Stress, I have been gradually developing my own approach to applying the principles of the Alexander Technique in the water. It was very hard for me to leave friends and students I made during my 20 years in Aylesbury. But Norwich is a lovely city and I am looking forward to making new friends and building a new practice here.
