Lessons consist of gentle hands-on by your teacher together with a verbal explanation to help you experience what lightness and economy of use is possible for day to day activities, for example, standing, walking, sitting, and bending.
Most teachers work with students in lying down using a Alexander ‘table’ and in sitting and standing, using a chair.
Some people have a short course of lessons to learn the basics, others prefer to take their understanding to a deeper level by continuing with regular lessons. The choice is yours.
The technique is not something which is ‘done to you’, but which you are a participant. There are things to take away from each lesson to try out for yourself in your daily life.
Lessons can be a life changing experience. As you let go on the old unwanted habits of a lifetime, life can become more enriching and fulfilling.
