Alexander Lessons (or Classes)
Alexander Technique lessons or classes are one-to-one and there are no exercises or postures to learn. The Teacher uses a range of simple everyday activities to explore a pupil’s individual patterns of movement and reaction. Gentle guidance with the hands and verbal instruction help calm the mind and restore the body’s natural reflexes. The props of a session typically include a chair, a table and a mirror.
The Alexander Technique is an education, and therefore, classes are usually referred to as lessons or sessions. The practitioner is the Teacher, and the client is the pupil.
Alexander lessons may involve practical applications of the Alexander Technique to a variety of specific activities like singing, reciting, typing, dance movements, yoga or playing a musical instrument. sessions normally last 30 minutes, and it is suggested that pupils wear loose and comfortable clothing.
Embarking on a course of Alexander lessons is an education. And so there is no right number of lessons one must have. Typically, a pupil will have about 10 to 25 classes to get a basic understanding of how to apply their experience to everyday life. Some people find huge benefits in just having a small number of sessions.
