How to learn the Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique is typically taught through a series of private lessons. It’s also taught in group classes in performing arts schools, continuing education programmes and other venues.
Private lessons with a certified teacher are the best way to learn the Alexander Technique.
Over a course of lessons, your teacher introduces concepts and practices that expand your awareness of the functioning of your nervous system, muscular system and skeletal system.
During lessons you learn through direct experience how to go about your daily activities with increasingly less effort and greater ease. You develop awareness of habits that interfere with your natural coordination and learn how to undo these patterns to consciously redirect your whole self into an optimal state of being. Most of us have many habitual patterns, learned consciously or unconsciously. These patterns can be unlearned, enabling the possibility of new choices – in posture, movement and reactions.

The best way to discover what the Technique is about and how it works is to experience it for yourself. We recommend you to book an introductory lesson, without further commitment. There is no fixed number of lessons to take, and lessons are normally booked individually, as you go along.
