Lessons

An Alexander Technique lesson is most enjoyable!

Lesson PageUsing my hands and verbal cues I will guide you through basic movements such as sitting, standing, lying down, walking and breathing.

You will learn how you are habitually interfering with your natural poise and balance. You will learn how to move more easily. You will be taught tools to reduce or eliminate pain. You will learn how to become more mobile and active.

Eventually as your skill improves you may want to explore other activities.

I have had students bring in their musical instruments, recite poetry or a monologue, sing, run, ride a bike, ride a horse, swing a golf club or tennis racquet – the list is endless.

Whatever you do and want to do better with increased balance, mobility and ease- we can address.

Each private lesson is 45 minutes. I ask you to wear loose fitting clothes that you can move in easily. Please wear or bring socks and wear a shirt or blouse with sleeves. I work out of an old farmhouse so in the winter months dress cozily.

You should allow time after your lesson to let the experience resonate. So don’t dash off to the grocery store or run a million errands. Create a calm space in your day.

How Many Lessons and How Often?

Of course everyone is different and everyone learns differently. Each person comes to the Alexander Technique for his or her own reasons.

If someone comes to me because of pain that pain has its own history and may need more attention.

But with all of that being said I have found that it takes a student about 10 lessons to gain a beginner’s understanding of the Technique.

More lessons bring more learning and better proficiency. I ask that my students commit to at least 10 lessons then we re evaluate from there. Lessons are taught on a weekly basis unless more often is needed. In short, I tailor your program to your needs.

Corporate Packages

I can tailor packages for your corporation’s needs. As well as teaching your employees how to sit, stand and move with greater ease I can also evaluate their workstations and provide simple solutions to improve their work environment. As a result your employees will learn how to be more efficient at their computers and other activities. They will learn how to sit and stand so as to avoid back and neck pain.
