Online Alexander Technique

To make the most of Online Alexander Lessons, all you need is a good internet connection and a passion for exploration.”  Anthony Kingsley

Traditional Alexander Lessons utilise primarily the medium of tactile touch or hands to communicate the learning experience from Teacher to Pupil. It is a method of direct transmission. Online Alexander lessons or classes communicate the essential Alexander experience through a different medium – the screen. Tactile touch is not the only way to be moved, or touched by experience. Think about how we respond to a beautiful symphony, or a stunning sunset. Think about how we respond to being in the presence of someone who uplifts our spirit. Anthony has devised a particular way of transmitting direct experience without the need to use tactile touch.

Anthony can guide you via a personal and individualised approach to enable you to move away from your pattens of mindbody effort and tension towards a new quality of ease and freedom. Online Alexander Sessions actually has some inbuilt advantages. Because it does not rely heavily on the hands-on guidance from a Teacher, it can more easily foster a spirit of self-responsibility and autonomy, rather than dependency. The Alexander Technique has always been seen as a learning experience, and all too often, the Alexander pupil comes to an Alexander Teacher with a wish to be fixed and sorted. This attitude can lead to a lifeless form of passivity. What is required form both Online Alexander Lessons as well as hands-on Alexander Technique is to foster an attitude of active and gentle cooperation between Teacher and pupil. This is why Online Alexander Technique sessions more easily avoid the pupil falling into the trap of seeing the Technique as a Therapy that is done to them, rather than a Technique for learning about oneself and making changes.

Of course, there are other advantages of Online Alexander Lessons. You can be anywhere in the world and have a session (Time-zone permitting!). And in the times of lockdown, this may be the only way you can have an Alexander session at all!

Hands-On Alexander Technique (or Classes)

I allocate a 15 minute consultation at the beginning of our first meeting. This is a really important time for us to get to know each other and gives me the opportunity to understand how I can be of most help. I work with all kinds of people. Typically, they come to me after having become frustrated and disappointed with a range of treatments and false promises. Sound familiar? Alexander is not for everyone. If you want a quick fix, then the Technique may not be for you. The Technique is a process of learning that empowers you to take control over your own health issues. It also promotes personal growth and development. ”                             Anthony Kingsley

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 aim of Alexander lessons is to maintain a state of harmony and composure in the body and mind in the face of life’s challenges. “ Anthony Kingsley

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 sessions 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.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.Marcel Proust

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 Alexander sessions.

Why not follow the example of Keanu Reeves, Pierce Brosnan, Victoria Beckham and Sir Paul McCartney and learn the Alexander Technique.
