The Alexander technique is primarily taught one-on-one in private sessions by a qualified Alexander Technique practitioner.
Standard duration of one-on-one session is 45 minutes, but it can be extended to 60 minutes by arrangement.
Private sessions can be booked as one off, series of 5 sessions and series of 10 sessions. The most benefit comes out of series of 10 sessions.
During the session I will guide you through simple movements and use my hands to help you identify and stop destructive patterns of tension. Tension arises from mental processes as well as physical, so discussions of personal reactions or behavior are likely to arise.
It is advisable to wear comfortable clothes that will not restrict your movement. No singlets, please. You will need to take off your shoes, so socks might be a good idea.
Smart Yoga classes
Smart Yoga classes are limited to 6 participants for benefits through personal attention.
To provide you the maximum benefit we individually modify poses to suit your body, rather that requesting you to exert yourself into the pose the way it presented on the glossy poster.
In the class we are using the Alexander Technique principles to guide the participants into carefully selected poses (asanas).
We are paying close attention to how people move, rather than how far they move. To us coordination is more important than flexibility.
From time to time, AT Grace offers workshops to the public. These included, but not limited to:
- Introduction to Alexander Technique
- Breathe with Ease
- The Art of Walking
- Alexander Technique for Dancers
- Listen to Your Body
