WHAT HAPPENS IN AN ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE LESSON?
You will not be required to remove any clothes, just your shoes. Ladies are requested to wear trousers. You will not be asked to do anything that takes you out of your comfort zone. There is no hierarchy of a doctor – patient relationship, it is more like a teacher - pupil relationship. These lessons involve a high degree of co-operation between the client and practitioner. Your role is be attentive to what is going on inside yourself as we gently adjust your balance and coordination. This will hopefully give you the trademark lightness of an Alexander Technique lesson, and you will leave feeling taller, more relaxed and free of the tensions that have been pulling you down.
An Alexander Technique lesson is a unique and personalised experience that provides you with the tools you need to improve your posture, reduce pain, and enhance your overall well-being. Each lesson is tailored to your exact requirements, and each time you attend a lesson it will be subtly, imperceptibly different. Because you will be.
Each Alexander Technique lesson, we will be working 1-1 helping you to identify and release unnecessary tension in your body. Much of the time, you won't even realise it! This is the power of habit manifesting itself. With gentle guidance and hands-on adjustment the teacher will help you to improve your posture, balance, and coordination in that moment. The lessons are designed to be interactive and engaging, giving you the opportunity to learn about your body and how to move with greater ease and efficiency. They are not conducted in silence, you will be free to ask questions about what is going on. You will be an active participant in the lesson, not a passive patient. You may arrive at your Alexander Technique lessons looking to improve your posture, enhance your well being, galvanise your performance or escape from the misery of long-term back pain. A course of Alexander Technique lessons is a valuable investment in how you live the rest of your life. For an attentive, receptive student, this is how long the benefits of Alexander Technique will last.
