Learning the Alexander Technique can help to prevent or alleviate conditions associated with undue tension or poor posture. These include many difficulties with co-ordination and movement; joint and muscle problems; breathing disorders; and stress-related conditions. Practioners can also improve their stamina, poise, increase clarity of perception, become more spontaneous and manage stage fright.
The Alexander Technique offers a method for life-long learning. It can be used to develop self-awareness and self-reliance.
What happens in lessons?
You can learn the Alexander Technique through one-to-one lessons with a qualified teacher. This setting provides the best opportunity for your individual needs to be addressed.
The number of lessons will depend on your particular needs and goals, and these can be discussed with your teacher. Please note that Alexander teachers, although highly trained, are not medical advisors and do not make medical diagnoses.
Learning the Alexander Technique involves changing long-standing habits, so improvement relies on your active participation. A course of 20 to 30 regular lessons can provide a good foundation for on-going self-discovery for most people.
Alexander lessons involve some movement, so you may be asked to wear non-restrictive clothing and remove your shoes.
