Group Classes

I offer Alexander Technique workshops and classes both for the general public and specialized groups. I have taught workshops tailored for many different populations including choral groups, yoga practitioners, naturopathy students, health professionals, elder groups, conservatory actors, professional and pre-professional dancers and musicians. I also offer general introductory classes and more open formatted drop-in classes.

Unless otherwise stated, classes and workshops are meant to accommodate both beginners and returning students. They offer an introduction for new students and allows those returning to go deeper in their understanding and integration of AT principles.

If you are interested in a group class or an ongoing course in the Technique for your organization or institution please contact me.

This 6-week course** offers both a comprehensive introduction and in-depth exploration of Alexander through discussion, self-exploration and hands-on demonstrations. We’ll apply AT principles to a range of daily activities such as sitting, standing, walking, bending, and reaching, along with investigating more complex movements.

The Alexander Technique is an educational process for enhancing health and well-being with proven therapeutic results. In learning Alexander, one gains a kinesthetic awareness of unnecessary muscular tension and learns the skills to let go. With a focus on releasing excess effort in the neck and back, the Technique enables you to better coordinate the entire body in motion. Better anatomical understanding along with the Technique’s guiding principles can help you access your torso’s genuine support and truly enliven your core, offering a path toward an effortless Pilates practice.

**This class series is open to new and continuing students of the Alexander Technique.

Registration includes an optional discounted private lesson:
Registered students who’d like to enhance their learning experience will be offered a discounted rate for one private lesson. Private lessons are approximately 45-minutes and will be scheduled separately at the student’s convenience during the 6-week session. This special rate is for workshop registrants only. Lessons will be taught at Alexander Technique NHV in Erector Square-about 1.5 miles from SAP.
