How to Study:
The Balance of Being Alexander Technique method teaches through hands-on alignment work and verbal instruction. Its effects are often immediate, but are sustained through repeated sessions over the course of several months or more. I offer introductory lessons andworkshopsto introduce you to the work and to give you a taste of your own potential, but lasting change takes time. For the most benefit, I encourage my students to work towards long term change and goals and enroll in one of my 3 month programs especially designed to meet individual needs. Programs run 3 times year, Fall, Winter and Spring.
I offer some scholarships for those individuals, who are motivated to study, but whose life circumstances are such that paying full price for a program would be a financial hardship.
Please contact me to discuss your needs. I wish to serve people of all ages, life experience and backgrounds.
