Cristina Codina Llavina

Cristina Codina Llavina comes from Barcelona, Spain.  She qualified as an Alexander Technique teacher in London in 2005 and is now a member of The Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).

Cristina tutors individuals and groups from all walks of life, and has taught at some of Europe’s top institutions. She teaches people from all walks of life. Her clients approach her for various reasons: to improve the way they play an instrument, gain a better poise when acting, to relieve neck and back pain, boost their presence in business and improve how they sit in the office, among others.

Cristina moved to London to take Alexander Technique training at the Alexander Technique Queen’s Park School, learning from one of the pioneering Alexander Technique practitioners. 

Cristina was captivated by the potential of the human body and its ability to overcome pain – especially when she herself developed acute back pain while studying to become a laboratory technician. Back in Barcelona, she was later diagnosed with sclerosis. She tried all the available therapies, but her back pain only subsided for a few days after each treatment but through Alexander Technique her poise and back pain improved considerably. 

Cristina believes in the passionately in the technique, and credits it for transforming her life – she feels much better now than she did in her early 20’s.

She has also been working with groups for the last ten years. Her approach embraces performers and entertainment organisations as well as corporate organisations. She delivers workshops of ‘stage fright’ and ‘posture alignment’ to organisations such as Royal Holloway University of London.

Motivated by her own experience of self-empowerment through learning the Alexander Technique, she is passionate to share her teaching to others. 

Cristina says: “I believe everyone can learn to use their bodies more effectively and improve physical freedom and vitality”.
