Alexander Technique Lessons

A first Alexander Technique lesson with Mark is taught one-to-one and is 1 hour long. In your first lesson we'll discuss your unique situation and how Alexander lessons can best help you.

You’ll receive hands on guidance and verbal instruction to help you discover a new experience of ease and awareness in your basic postures and movements (such as in standing, sitting, or walking).

If your goal involves a specific activity (for example music, acting, public speaking, athletics, paddling, yoga, etc..), then we will apply the Alexander Technique to your activity - you’ll begin to increase awareness, ease, and efficiency so you can use yourself in a more optimal way in your chosen activity.

Throughout the lesson there will be time to ask any questions. You’ll explore positive ways to understand and change your own habits of excess tension so you can use yourself in a more balanced and efficient way.

No student can learn the whole Alexander Technique in one lesson! But, you’ll receive a true first hand experience of the Alexander Technique, and gain a helpful introduction to start to use the Alexander Technique to enhance how you move, feel, and perform in your life or work.
