About Lessons

To learn the Alexander Technique is to step into an adventure of discovery. You will discover that:

  • it is possible for your body to be your ally and not your adversary
  • it is possible to go about your day with an increasing sense of lightness and ease
  • it is possible to function better and feel better, whatever your current state of health

What is the Process?

Each of us has our own personal ways of using our body in activity - our own unique set of postural and movement habits. We also have our own unique ways of reacting to life's challenges - those reactions can be habitual too. Often our habits take us out of balance and keep us there without our realizing it. This can cause us a variety of problems.

Using a gentle touch and simple verbal instructions, I will guide you through very simple every-day activities like sitting, standing, walking, bending, breathing, etc. We will work together to discover the specific ways you are taking yourself out of balance. You will gain the tools necessary to begin changing those habits, so that you can act and react in a more balanced, light and free way, with less compression and less tension.

You will also spend part of each lesson lying on a comfortable padded table. You remain actively engaged in the learning process, without having the added challenge of being upright. This encourages the releasing of unnecessary tension habits even more.

If you engage in more complex activities, such as any form of exercise, playing a musical instrument, or another activity, we can work with those as well.

How long does it take to learn?

This varies depending on the individual and their particular reasons for coming. As with learning anything new, do expect to devote some time to it. Ten lessons will give you a basic start. Many students continue for 20-30 lessons or more. Some continue for years after their initial reason for coming has resolved, because they continue to benefit in other ways. It's up to you!
