Lessons and FAQs
About the lesson
I teach the Technique in a series of individual lessons. By using my hands very gently (not manipulation) on your head, neck, back and limbs I enable you to recognise and release any unnecessary tension and to redirect your energy. The principles of the Technique will be explained and how they can be applied to your daily activities.
The difference between the Alexander Technique and other therapies is that you are an active participant. This is why sessions are called ‘lessons’ and you are a ‘pupil’. My aim is not just to help you alleviate your current problem but to teach you the skill to prevent a further recurrence.
Since the Alexander Technique cannot be adequately described in words but is something that needs to be experienced, having an introductory lesson is the best way of finding out if it is for you.
How long does a lesson last and how many will I need?
Lessons last for approx. 45/50 minutes. The number of lessons you have depends on your individual needs and goals. A series of lessons are recommended but even a few can make a lasting difference.
It is advisable at first to have lessons weekly, allowing the new approach to movement to establish. Following this, lessons can be taken on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
