What happens in a lesson?
An Alexander Technique lesson lasts 45 minutes and is usually taught on a one to one basis. There are generally two parts to the lesson. The first is referred to as ‘chair work’. Simple daily movements such as sitting, standing and walking are used to facilitate the proper relationship of the head, neck and back in activity. The second part is called ‘table work’. The student lies on their back on a specially designed table. With the help of teacher, the student learns to release long-held tension while lengthening and widening the back.
