Having Lessons

The Alexander Technique is taught with a course of one-to-one lessons which are adapted to suit your individual needs. The teacher uses a combination of gentle hands-on guidance and verbal instruction, exploring simple everyday activities such as standing, sitting, walking and bending. Through observation you will begin to identify and prevent the patterns of tension that are interfering with your ease of movement. Part of the lesson usually involves lying down to allow maximum support and relief for the back.

As your experience and self-awareness improves you can change long-standing habits, bringing natural poise and awareness to anything you do.

The number of lessons you take will depend on your particular needs and goals. You are most welcome to come along for one lesson to find out more about how the Alexander Technique could help you.

Cancellation policy: If you need to cancel your lesson, please give as much notice as possible to allow me to offer the slot to someone else, ideally more than 24 hours. I like to be flexible and understanding, though lessons cancelled at short notice may be subject to part-payment. Lessons missed with no prior notice will be charged at full price. 

I teach one to one lessons in the Alexander Technique in Chesham, Bucks, with pupils coming from South Bucks and neighbouring Hertfordshire and Berkshire.

I had come to accept that I would get headaches on a weekly basis and that my neck and back would always ache. I sit at a desk for most of my working day and a car accident aggravated my back and neck pain. Just over 2 months after starting lessons with Julia I can barely remember the last time I had a headache and my neck and back are no longer knotted and achy. It’s not easy to understand quite how this technique works, but it absolutely does. Thank you so much Julia, I don’t just feel better, I feel taller too! Jane, mortgage advisor.
