What to expect in a lesson

  • Initially we may discuss your reasons for taking lessons and what happens in a lesson.

  • I will guide you through simple movements and everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking or bending, using hands-on guidance and verbal explanations.

  • Part of the lesson may include lying down in the classic Alexander Technique semi-supine position which allows maximum support for the back to relax and expand.

  • Although you will not be engaging in any kind of strenuous exercise, the lesson relies on your active participation.

  • I recommend that you wear unrestrictive clothing, such as trousers or leggings with a short or long-sleeved top. I will ask you to remove your shoes.

  • A lesson lasts about 45 minutes.

  • Your progress and particular needs and goals will determine the number of lessons you decide to take. Many people notice benefits from the very first lesson. A series of 20 to 30 lessons is a good foundation for you to be able to start applying the Alexander Technique in your daily life.

  • Cost of lessons: £40 per lesson; £200 for six lessons booked in advance; £30 for over 65.
