Courses and costs

Introductory Workshops

  • Introduction to the Alexander Technique:

10.00 am – 11.00am every Saturday.

Cost: $20.00

Bookings are essential

This short introduction covers the basics of the Alexander Technique and how it can be applied to the way we sit, stand and walk.  You will leave with an understanding  of how the Technique can bring ease and balance to these activities, and can lead to reduction of pain in the longer term.

  • Alexander Technique Workshop: Learn your way out of pain

Upcoming workshop dates:


Morning tea is provided.

Cost : $60.00

The number of spaces in this workshop is limited to 7.

Bookings are essential.

This workshop will look at some of the current recommendations for the management of chronic pain with the aim of understanding where the Alexander Technique may fit within the many available options for the prevention and management of pain. What is the role of the Alexander Technique, and how can it help you improve the way you manage your pain? Basic aspects of the neuroscience of pain will be discussed, along with an in-depth look at the Alexander Technique.

An Introduction to Constructive Rest  will be included in this workshop. Constructive Rest is a simple practice that begins to build a conscious understanding of the individual patterns of tension present in the body, and teaches the “know-how-to” of letting them go. Practicing Constructive Rest is about undoing chronic tension, and laying a foundation on which to build balance and strength in the body. It can be very beneficial for anyone who is in chronic pain or discomfort, and helps to support a return to performing daily activities and exercise, both recommended strategies for successful pain management.
