How do you Learn the Alexander Technique?
You can learn the Alexander Technique through one-to-one lessons with me at my practice in Chiswick, West London, or from your own home online.
Although there are no specific exercises, learning the Technique involves changing long-standing habits of movement, and relies on your active participation. It can be practised wherever you are. Learning the Alexander Technique is possible for people of all ages and levels of physical mobility.
Each lesson is designed around the individual. The number of lessons you take will depend on your particular needs and goals, but regular lessons – at least at the beginning – are important.
Lessons in Chiswick
I teach one-to-one private lessons from my practice in Chiswick, West London.
The Technique is all about learning a new experience. It is taught through gentle hands-on guidance and discussion 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 usually also includes you lying down in the classic Alexander Technique semi-supine position, which allows maximum support and relief for the back.
One to one lessons last about 45 minutes and cost £45.00.
During lockdown it became necessary to adapt lessons to be given online and I have discovered that this is an effective and rewarding way to learn. There is a different quality of attention with online teaching – it is very focused, practical and flexible.
Accessible wherever you are in the world.
