What happens in a Lesson
Your teacher will guide you through simple movements and everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking or bending, communicating through skilful hands-on guidance and verbal explanation to help you move more freely and easily.
Gradually you learn how to recognise and change long-standing habits that cause unnecessary tension; and then apply your new understanding to everyday activities and more complex ones, to bring awareness and poise into everything you do.
A lesson will also include a short period of lying down in the classic Alexander Technique semi-supine position which allows maximum support for the back to relax and expand.
Just like riding a bike, once learned, the Technique stays with you for life!
Who can benefit from the Technique?
Whatever your age, ability or state of health, the Technique can help you re-discover freedom and ease in movement, making you feel lighter, taller and more aware of your posture, balance and physical co-ordination.
How many lessons?
Your progress and particular needs and goals will determine the number of lessons you decide to take. Many people notice benefits from the very first lesson. A series of 10 to 20 lessons is a good foundation to set you on your way to using the Technique yourself in everyday life.
