I have been taking lessons for a few years now. Right from the first lesson my chronic back pain improved and I was moving more smoothly. After a lesson I always feel lighter, more positive and more confident. The Alexander Technique has helped me to realise that I have a choice about how I use my body. This awareness has spread to other areas of my life and I now feel more in control of myself and my life.
Learning the Alexander Technique is best achieved through one-to-one lessons with teachers. This allows you to work with teacher on your individual habits of movement, which vary from person to person.
But learning in group-settings, through one-off workshops or courses can also be helpful in many ways. For example
- introductory workshops and courses can be a good way to familiarise yourself with the basic concepts of the Alexander Technique
- group learning can reinforce what you learn in one-to-one lessons
- specialist courses can help you apply the Alexander Technique to particular activities or in particular settings
- residential workshops or courses can help you experience the Alexander Technique in new and deeper ways
