How to learn Alexander Technique - lesson prices and info

Alexander Technique is both an education and a therapy.  It is about helping you, to help yourself.  Learn what happens in a lesson, fees and how many lessons to expect.

 

Alexander Technique Lessons

Most Alexander Technique lessons are taught one-to-one, by a qualified teacher. A progressive series is structured, specific to the pupil’s needs.  Usually lessons are weekly for 45 or 60 minutes.

The teacher combines observation, dialogue and gentle manual guidance to help students improve self-awareness, release habitual tensions and redirect effort into efficient movement.

Principles are taught so students can independently apply the technique to specialised skills, or in daily activities. Lessons typically involve the teacher working with the student moving, walking, sitting, standing and lying down.

Semi Supine Alexnader Technique

It is generally considered that 10 lessons give students a practical understanding of the principles, and 30 gives the student a strong independence and ability to manage conditions by consistently applying the principles in activity.

As students continue to use what they have learnt, benefits accrued in a session are sustained. A series of lessons builds skills that can be used and developed indefinitely.
