What happens in an Alexander Technique lesson

All you really need to bring along for a lesson is your presence and an openness to explore. Usually first lessons are never quite what you expect!

Lessons invariably involve exploring patterns of habitual movement and how you support yourself during these movements.  This might at times involve lying on the floor or mostly on a teaching table. This means that is preferable that you wear clothes that are easy to move in. Unlike massage or different sorts of manipulative body-work, Alexander Technique lessons do not require direct contact with muscle and skin. You do not have to take off any of your clothes.

A light hands-on refined touch is used as your attention is guided through various activities.  You learn to engage with and refine the Body Sense and that is on the ‘neuro’ side of  the neuro-muscular re-pattering. It is not like massage which is on the ‘muscular’ side of the neuro-muscular partnership.

How long is an appointment? A typical lesson is around 35 minutes.

The cost of a lesson is £25.
