In the beginning, changing our habits without guidance is difficult, for our sensations give us feedback that is more or less reliable, and what we think we are doing (or not doing) does not always correspond to what we are really doing. That is why this new way of redirecting mind and body needs to be acquired in the course of individual lessons.
In a lesson, our field of exploration is that of everyday activities such as walking, sitting, standing, speaking, etc. By encouraging you to approach these activities as if for the first time, my role, through words and touch, is to teach you to identify your habits and explore other possibilities. This skill which you will gradually make your own applies in the same way to the more complex activities which we can then also explore together (playing a musical instrument, singing, reading or presenting material out loud, writing at the computer or by hand, drawing, refining yoga or meditative postures, etc.).
A series of 10 lessons will enable us to review how you apply the principles in your personal and/or professional life. The Alexander work being educational, one usually recommends thirty or so lessons to acquire a basic autonomy.
