On arriving to your lesson you will stand in front of a chair. The teacher will analyse your current posture and the overall condition of your mind and body, as you stand, and as you move through sitting and standing. Using hands on work and vocal guidance, as well as tutoring on the Alexander Technique, we will bring about a much more calm and relaxed experience in the pupil. After about ten minutes you will move to a massage table, where you will receive further work to bring about a much better state than the one you arrived in. We will finish with around ten to fifteen minutes of the chair work. You will leave amazed at the transformation or confused as to what just happened, either way you will be moving towards a life enhancing change, in your posture and in your mind.
