Alexander Technique  Lessons

Alexander Technique lessons in Central London and North London
Helping a pupil to stay poised

The best way to learn the Alexander Technique is through one to one lessons with a qualified Alexander teacher.

 

During your first lesson we will discuss your reasons for wanting lessons and I will explain how the Technique works. This is followed by some practical hands-on work using simple activities such as sitting, standing and walking to help you become more aware of how you are using yourself.  You may also be worked with whilst lying down on a padded table for part of the lesson to help release undue tension. Women might prefer to wear trousers, but normal clothing is fine.  

 

There are no specific Alexander Technique exercises to learn, rather, it is an exploration and re-education of the way we habitually use ourselves and addresses the way we think as much as the way we move. Each lesson is tailored to the needs of the individual.

 

During your Alexander lesson you will:

 

  • Have one-on-one instruction to address your individual needs.
  • Receive gentle, hands-on guidance and verbal instruction.
  • Learn to bring ease and coordination to simple, everyday movements and positions, such as sitting, standing, walking, bending and reaching.
  • Learn how to use lying down in semi-supine/constructive rest as a way to undo tension and stress.
  • Learn to prevent harmful habits of tension and reaction.
  • Learn to apply the Alexander Technique to activities of your choice, such as working at the computer, playing a musical instrument, public-speaking or exercising.

Throughout a course of lessons you will gain improved self-awareness, becoming more attuned to the body's warning signs, learn to move more freely and improve your co-ordination. Increasingly you will be able to apply these changes to everyday situations and more complex activities.

"My first AT session seems to have done wonders already. Not sure if it's my mind which is now convinced my back is getting better or my body which tries to relax and reduce or eliminate the pain. Probably a bit of both.Thanks so much. I look forward to next week's session."
