Lessons

What happens in a lesson?

I will introduce you to F.M. Alexander's concepts and principles.  We will explore - and challenge - your thinking in our discussions, and there will usually (though not always) be some ‘hands on’ work.  This is another kind of 'conversation' in which I use my hands very delicately to interact with your musculature in such a way that you become more aware of what you've been doing, and you can then respond and change if you're willing to.  

Do I need to wear anything special or bring anything?

No special clothes are needed.  Just expect your brain to get a good workout.

How many lessons do I need, and how often?

This depends entirely on you and your needs.  A series of 6 weekly lessons will give you a very useful start. You can decide after that whether and how to continue.  

In the boardgame Othello, the advertising strapline was, "A minute to learn, a lifetime to master."  So it is with the Alexander Technique; the longer you learn, the more you improve.  

Which are better, one-to-one or group lessons?

They are both good. You can learn a heck of a lot in group lessons; seeing and participating in other people's 'turns' as well as your own can really drive home the concepts.  But one-to-one lessons are also excellent, of course, and some people prefer them.  I'll be delighted to work in whichever way works best for you.
