How long do I need to come for lessons?
Lessons are flexible according to your needs.
Most people benefit from at least 10 regular lessons.
Initially it is beneficial to come regularly, at least once a week, in order to really make use of the new skills you will learn in all aspects of your life.
This may seem like a big commitment, but once you have learned the skills, they will continue to benefit you for the rest of your life.
What do I need to wear to a lesson?
Whatever you normally wear is fine. The lessons will be conducted fully clothed. You may be asked to remove your shoes.
We may also work lying down so you may feel more comfortable in trousers rather than a skirt.
Can I have lessons in my own home?
Yes if you have difficulty in getting to me I can certainly come you you. Please get in touch to arrange this.
Are group lessons available?
Yes. See my news and courses page for up to date courses.
You could also share a lesson with a friend or two so please get in touch to arrange this.
Am I too old to learn?
No. It is possible to learn the Alexander Technique at any age.
The famous author George Bernard Shaw went to F. M. Alexander for lessons at the age of 80 and believed that it made the last 10 years of his life the best.
Can the Alexander Technique help my back pain?
Clinical trial results published in the British Medical Journal show that Alexander Technique lessons provide long-term benefit for chronic and recurrent back pain sufferers.
Everyone is individual and it depends on the specific problem. It is possible that the Alexander Technique will help the problem by working indirectly with your use. Alexander Technique teachers are however not trained to diagnose.
The Alexander Technique will certainly give you the tools to work with the discomfort or pain and find ways of finding greater ease.
How can the Technique help me if I have no physical problems?
Many people want to change something in their lives even if they don't know exactly what it is.
