You learn the Alexander Technique through one-to-one lessons with me at my practice in Dunmow, Essex.
Learning the Technique involves changing long-standing habits of movement, and relies on your active participation.
The Technique involves no specific exercises, requires no special equipment, and can be practised wherever you are. It is suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical mobility.
The Technique is taught by gentle, non-intrusive hands-on guidance and verbal instructions to help you find ease and balance within yourself, whilst performing simple movements and everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking or bending. Part of the lesson may also include you lying down in the classic Alexander Technique semi-supine position, which allows maximum support and relief for the back.
Through experience and observation you gain increased awareness, enabling you to change long-standing habits and to function more efficiently. In time you will be able to use your new understanding and skill in more complex and demanding activities; you can bring the awareness and poise of the Technique to anything you do.
The number of lessons you take will depend on your particular needs and goals. Regular lessons, at least at the beginning, are important. I offer a discount for the first 6 lessons booked together (see below).
However, the only way to really understand the Technique is to experience it for yourself, so I encourage you to come along for a trial lesson.
