How many lessons will I need?

The number of lessons depend on how much you apply the Technique between lessons, the condition you are in when you first start and how far you would like to take it. A basic course of around 20 lessons is recommended.

It is a bit like learning any new skill or perhaps a new language. Some people continue to take lessons for many years at fairly regular intervals because they enjoy it and continue to improve.

In lessons I discovered very quickly the benefits to my persistent back pain following a nasty whiplash. I had heard that the Alexander technique can improve discomfort and pain greatly by retraining one's posture, but from the first lesson I discovered that there was also a lot of mental training that has been of huge benefit in the way I have viewed life since.
