How long is each lesson?
Private lessons are 30 minutes long. Introductory lessons are 1 hour long.
How many lessons will I need?
Initially it is recommended to book a series of 5 to 10 lessons to build a foundational understanding of the work. Many people find the work so interesting and beneficial that they choose to continue studying for many years to increase their skill and understanding. In the ITM Alexander Technique there are a wide variety of learning opportunities available to students: private lessons, group lessons, weekend and residential workshops and a year and a half formal training programme in a “Complete Alexander Education”.
Do I have to commit to a series of sessions?
No, Yew Tree Clinic run a regular Alexander Technique drop in session in our Bristol based clinic.
Do I need to wear special clothes?
There is nothing special you need to wear or bring to a lesson, normal day clothes are absolutely fine.
Is there any homework to be done between lessons?
Most people find that they can immediately apply what they have leaned between lessons to their everyday life. As students progress with the work the teacher may recommend reading assignments or structure a series of lessons around a book or topic with homework.
