Alexander Technique Sherford House, Bromyard, Herefordshire
How do you learn the Alexander Technique?
You learn the Alexander Technique through one-to-one lessons with me at my practice in Bromyard on the Herefordshire / Worcestershire / Shropshire border. Learning the Technique involves changing long-standing habits of movement, and relies on your active participation.
The Technique involves no specific exercises, requires no special equipment, and can be practised wherever you are. It is suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical mobility.

…You are not here to do exercises, but to be able to meet a stimulus that always puts you wrong and to learn to deal with it…
The Technique is taught by gentle hands-on guidance and verbal explanations to help you find ease and balance within yourself, whilst performing simple movements and everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking or bending. Part of the lesson usually also includes you lying down in the classic Alexander Technique semi-supine position, which allows maximum support and relief for the back.
Through experience and observation you gain increased awareness, enabling you to change long-standing habits and to function more efficiently. In time you will be able to use your new understanding and skill in more complex and demanding activities; you can bring the awareness and poise of the Technique to anything you do.

Your initial lesson gives you the opportunity to discuss your situation, and most importantly to experience the Technique and discover how it might help you.
The number of lessons you take will depend on your particular needs and goals, but regular lessons, at least at the beginning, are important. Many people start with two a week, but this is not always practical for everyone and I will discuss your individual situation and needs with you. Whilst the principle is to learn to apply the Technique yourself in your daily life, many people find that ongoing lessons to keep themselves in optimal condition become an important (and enjoyable!) part of their routine.
