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 unable to work face to face 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. Face masks do not have to be worn outside and there would be no hands on and 2 m social distancing would be adhered to.
I am also offering Online sessions. 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 Online Session will be on Skype.
The Alexander Technique is taught on a one to one basis so that I can address individual needs.The first session starts with me taking down a brief medical history, looking at your lifestyle and assessing your posture. I will help you to release unhelpful muscle tension by gentle hands on guidance and verbal instruction.
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 Session 1 hour £60
Subsequent Sessions 3/4 hour £45
Payment method : cash, cheque or BACS transfer. The number of sessions you have can be discussed with me and depends on your particular needs and goals.
