The Process

The process of learning the Alexander Technique begins by making a decision to find real solutions to your problems.

Understanding what happens in a lesson opens up possibilities to explore particular movements in you daily life that you find difficult to perform or that cause you pain or discomfort. Through the course of lessons you will learn how to let go of chronic patterns of tension and regain balance, coordination and calmness.

A course of 10 lessons will give you many insights into how your habits may be affecting your function as well as a better understanding of the cause of persistent pains. The first lesson is for one hour with subsequent lessons being of 45 minutes duration.

A course of 24 lessons has been scientifically shown to give long-term relief from low back pain.

The Technique can also be beneficial in many other chronic pain situations.

Discounts are available for students who choose to take a course of lessons.

Think Alexander offers a number of options for courses at reasonable costs.

What happens in a lesson?

P1180241Alexander Technique lessons are person-centred and students are individually assessed to determine their needs.

The student and teacher work together to achieve the student’s goals, whether they involve reducing pain, improving the singing voice, or gaining greater ease in walking and running.

The teacher uses gentle guidance with the hands and verbal direction to assist the student in becoming more aware of how habitual muscle tension and mental attitudes may be restricting their movement and breathing.

Lessons are generally tailored. For example, if a student wants to improve their skills in playing a musical instrument, they can bring their instrument to the lesson.

Having a task or problem that is relevant to you is a great way to begin to learn the Alexander Technique.


The Alexander technique is taught worldwide and there are many informative resources available.
