Alexander Technique Lessons & Classes
There are a number of ways you can learn the Alexander Technique.
ITM teachers offer both group and private lessons.
Working in a group is a strong choice, as the dynamic of watching other's lessons and interacting with their questions and ideas really seems to accelerate your learning. I also find that people laugh more when they are sharing this work with others, and this helps open our minds and make us more receptive to learning.
Group work can involve something small and quite low key, such as sharing a session with one other person, perhaps a friend or partner. Alternatively, you can sign up for an introductory class, which you would share with no more than 4 other people. Larger scale possibilities include one or two day workshops for six or more people, which can involve several teachers working together.
You can also have lessons on your own, where all the time in the session is committed to you. If you prefer privacy and enjoy having all the time focused on your questions and choice of activity, this is a great option.
All of the classes take place in a fun and supportive learning environment. If you're not sure, then an initial private introductory session will give us the opportunity to discuss which approach would be best for you. I also run periodic group introductions, if you just want to dip your toe in the water and see if you would like to proceed with further classes.

Introductory Talks & Demonstrations
A two or three hour introduction to the work, including demonstration lessons and question time. The perfect taster session for businesses, universities, colleges or any other interested group.
Cost: Negotiable. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
I can also organise larger events such as half day or full day workshops.
These are a great option for companies interested in well being in the workplace.
Alexander's work can help you to prevent work related pain and injury. It can also increase your creativity, efficiency and problem solving skills, allowing you to use less effort and accomplish more.
Along with my partner Simon, I administer the current ITM Teacher Training Course. I also actively assist in the training of teachers as part of the ITM teacher training programme.
The first three modules in ITM training form what we call a Complete Alexander Technique Training (CAT Training). These modules, when taken in combination with the included practical lesson experience, were created to give students the optimum, most powerful experience in learning how to do Alexander's work for themselves.
The full training consists of an intensive four-year program, which is both demanding and hugely rewarding. It is an extraordinary process of personal development, so many people take the full course even though they have no intention of becoming a teacher.
