The first lesson will start with a short discussion about what brings you to Alexander Technique and what you’d like to get from it.
You will then look at some simple everyday activities such as standing, sitting and walking. With verbal instruction and manual guidance the teacher will encourage you to release inappropriate tension during movement and you’ll discover more about habits which may be limiting your potential. In this way you’ll come to appreciate how thought affects action and you’ll experience greater alertness and lighter and freer movement.
In time and with practice you will be able to use your new understanding and skill in more complex and demanding activities and situations in your daily life. You can bring awareness and poise to anything that you do.
