Activities in the lessons usually begin with relatively simple (and very habitual) tasks such as sitting down and standing up from a chair, walking, & climbing stairs. From there you can take the skills learned in easier tasks and apply them to more complicated activities such as playing the violin, or horseback riding. Workers with repetitive stress injury and/or carpal tunnel syndrome often experience great relief when applying the Alexander Technique to their work.
All of us have many habitual patterns of tension, learned both consciously and unconsciously. These patterns can be unlearned, enabling the possibility of new choices in posture, movement and reaction. During lessons you’ll develop awareness of habits that interfere with your natural coordination. You’ll learn how to undo these patterns and develop the ability to consciously redirect your whole self into an optimal state of being and functioning.
Through practical direct experience you can learn how to go about your daily activities with increasingly greater ease and less effort.
