WHAT HAPPENS IN A LESSON?
 
Alexander Technique is a process of active learning. I teach it using a combination of verbal guidance and hands on contact to explore habits of tension you bring into your body.  

Over a series of lessons you will learn to have better balance and coordination, together with freer movement when sitting, standing/walking or bending.
 
SEMISUPINE (or ACTIVE REST)
 
Part of the lesson involves lying down, which is a helpful tool for a healthy spine.
 
WHY THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE?
 
The Alexander Technique is a well known effective way to enhance well being and performance in all areas of work and play.
The Alexander Technique is open to everyone:
All ages, professions and levels of fitness.
Learn how to take care of yourself in all daily life and activities.
Learn to use mind and body in a more balanced and coordinated way
