Alexander Technique Introductory Workshops 

We are unable to offer workshops at the moment due to current Covid restrictions. 



Alexander Technique Introductory Workshops


We are unable to offer workshops at the moment as a result of Covid. We hope to be able to offer them in the future as restrictions ease or online.

Understanding the difference that Alexander lessons can make to your life, and how they might help you, with your particular concerns, can be difficult without the practical experience of trying it out, seeing how it works and feeling the difference it can make.

These workshops will give you this experience and the opportunity to learn about the Alexander Technique. If you are thinking of taking lessons, the workshops will allow you to decide to continue or not. When you come to an Introductory Workshop you then do not need to come to the one-hour introductory lesson, you can start with regular half hour lessons.

Please note that for people who go on to take one-to-one lessons the introductory workshop serves instead of the one-hour introductory lesson.
