1-on-1 Private Lessons

Most often lessons are taught on a 1-on-1  and are typically 45 to 60 minutes in length. Your lesson consists of learning a new way of approaching daily activities that allows for more efficiency and freedom in all movements. I will help you see what in your movement style contributes to your recurring difficulties, whether it is back or neck pain, restricted breathing, muscle fatigue or overall physical/ psychological stress. By analyzing the whole movement pattern, not just the symptoms, we'll bring your awareness to any harmful physical habits and guide you towards a more integrated way of moving.

During your lesson, the focus will be on simple movements such as sitting, standing, and walking, since these are familiar and habitual activities and they can tell us a great deal about your overall movement patterns. During the lesson, the teacher will use highly skilled, hands-on guidance and verbal feedback to assist the student in the learning process. In addition, you are encouraged to bring anything with you to the lesson that you use often to receive guidance and as to how you can increase your effectiveness in its use. Musicians, for example, can bring in their instruments to work on their use and coordination while they are actually playing. Yogi's can bring in their mats, 9-5er's can bring in their laptops, you get the picture.


Group Classes

You can also learn the Technique in a series of group lessons alongside other students interested in learning skills for change. While many prefer the attention you receive in a 1-on-1 setting, group classes offer a different perspective to students as you are also learning


Online Learning

A fairly new approach to learning this work, you can learn in the comfort of your own home with guidance from a professional who understands their are always limitations to time and travel. I'm currently in the process of creating a series of online videos and can keep you posted {be sure to sign up for my newsletter below}.

 

What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is an educational method that penetrates to the heart of our everyday movement. It shows you how to undo habitual patterns of tension that interfere with your body’s inherent design. It is a powerful tool that can be used in anything you do, whether you are sitting at your desk, walking down the street, practicing yoga or playing golf. Most people begin their lives moving with ease and grace. Yet as we get older, we tend to override our inherent freedom of movement with physical habits that confine and compress our bodies. Negative influences such as stress, poor role models, and difficult school and work environments also contribute to habits of tension and misalignment in the body. These harmful habits may result in common problems such as neck or back pain, muscle tension, or unnecessary stress in the body. The Alexander Technique addresses the cause of these problems by teaching you to become aware of your harmful habits, thus opening the way for you to make more conscious and intelligent choices in the way you use your body. It is is not a treatment or a series of assigned exercises, but rather an education with a foundation of principles that is used to bring more awareness to everyday activities.

An Alexander Technique lesson consists of learning a new way of approaching daily activities that allows for more efficiency and freedom in all movements. The teacher will help you to recognize what in your movement style contributes to your recurring difficulties, whether it is back or neck pain, restricted breathing, muscle fatigue or overall physical/ psychological stress.
