Q: What happens in an Alexander Technique lesson?
A: Private lessons traditionally consist of table work (constructive rest), sitting and standing from a chair (chair work), and explorations of other simple, everyday movements. I use gentle hands-on guidance to encourage and facilitate a new experience of these movements with the student. By examining everyday activities, we build up experiences and skills that you can use in any situation – from washing the dishes to shooting hoops!
Q: How many lessons does it take to experience the benefits of the Alexander Technique?
A: The Alexander Technique is an educational method and the benefits tend to accrue most clearly over time. I recommend a 3-lesson series for those new to the AT so you can sharpen your awareness of your habitual movement and learn some basic tools to start introducing change. Generally, a 10-lesson series will give you a good foundation in the work; some people continue to build their AT skills through lessons for many years.
