What does a lesson look like?
In an Alexander Technique lesson I work hands-on with the student in a variety of movements such as sitting, standing, bending, and other activities the student does in their every day lives. I may ask the student to stop and observe how they feel physically or what they are thinking about during the movement. This helps the student assess their coordination and gradually improve the efficacy of their movements and thought processes.
I conclude each lesson by answering any questions the student may have. I encourage them to think about the principles covered in the lesson and give them specific suggestions for how they may incorporate the Alexander Technique principles in their daily life until the next lesson. In certain circumstances I may also provide the student with a reading assignment from one of F.M. Alexander’s books or another book on the Technique.
