The Alexander Technique is mainly taught through one-to-one lessons with a qualified teacher. This ensures that one’s individual needs are addressed.
Initially you work with simple, everyday movements, such as standing, sitting or walking, with special consideration given to the issues you may have come with. Part of the lesson can involve lying on a table so you can experience how your head, neck and back can release constricted muscles, allowing you to increase the capacity for freedom of movement.
The teacher uses explanation and a guiding touch to help you re-discover balance and ease within yourself. Through experience and observation, you learn how your co-ordination works, how you create tension and how you can prevent or release it.
This awareness enables you to change long-standing habits and function more efficiently. You can then use your new understanding and skill in more complex and demanding activities.
You can book a lesson with any of the YATC Teaching Team, who teach in venues in York, Pocklington and Howden.
