Your Alexander Technique Lesson
Your first Alexander lesson will start by taking a few minutes to review your reason(s) for the lesson and how the Alexander Technique can best help you.
You’ll then receive clear hands on guidance and verbal instruction to help you begin to understand and improve your awareness, movement, and posture.
We’ll begin with your basic movements (such as sitting, standing, or walking). These provide the fundamental framework for you to practice and develop the Alexander Technique in your life. You’ll learn to recognize and reduce habits of excess tension, helping you move and use yourself in a more optimal way.
Depending on your goals we will use your choice of activity (i.e acting, music, work tasks, athletic movements etc..). You’ll start to discover how to bring enhanced awareness, dynamic muscle tone, and greater ease to how you use yourself in this activity.
Throughout your lesson you’ll receive clear hands-on guidance and education to help you experience the Alexander Technique, or to refresh your practice and re-connect to the Alexander Technique if you’ve previously had lessons.
There will be time to ask any questions you have, so you feel comfortable and learn at the level right for you.
You’ll finish with a simple practice and clear tools to begin to apply the Alexander Technique in your own life.

Who is the Alexander Technique best for?
The Alexander Technique is best for people who are self-motivated to learn how to make a change for themselves. It's not a passive process - instead, it’s a skill that you develop and apply in your life. The more you practice, and the more you use it, the more benefits you get.
No special skills or background are required, but you can expect to focus on daily self-application (i.e directly applying the Alexander Technique in the activities and movements you already do), and to do about 10-20 minutes of additional practice each day. The more you integrate the practice into your movements and postures of everyday life or work, the faster you will learn, and the more benefits you will see.
