Alexander Technique covering North Yorkshire, County Durham and Teesside.
What Do I Offer:
I work at The Alexander Studio in Skeeby near Richmond which is located 2 miles from Scotch Corner. Due to the pandemic I am currently not teaching one to one lessons inside but I am available to work outside. It is very helpful to apply the Alexander Technique to an activity such as going for a walk.
I am also offering Online lessons on Skype. I would ask you to have a mat and a few paperback books with you and to carry out a Risk Assessment of the room where you will be for the session.
The Alexander Technique is taught on a one to one basis so that I can address individual needs.The first lesson starts with me taking down a brief medical history, looking at your lifestyle and assessing your posture. Then I will start teaching the Alexander Technique.
You will learn to apply the Alexander Technique to activities such as standing and sitting, bending, working at a computer, playing an instrument, walking, acting and singing in your session.
For comfort it is recommended that you wear ordinary loose fitting clothing such as trousers or a tracksuit.
First Lesson 1 hour £60
Subsequent Lessons 3/4 hour £45 and 1/2 hour £30
6 Lessons 45 mins £260 ( payable at 1st lesson)
Payment method : cash or BACS transfer.
The number of lessons you have can be discussed with me and depends on your particular needs and goals. Learning the Alexander Technique is like learning to play the piano and may take a while as we will be working on changing habits. I usually recommend having 6 lessons to begin with and then we would have a review.
