WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
This isn’t a gym or yoga session and you won’t be building up a sweat but we will be moving and may be working on the floor from time to time so most people prefer to wear loose fitting trousers or leggings rather than tight-fitting jeans. Bring along extra layers as you might feel colder as you release deep tensions.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Do bring along a blanket or yoga mat for floor work and if it’s easy for you to do so, a couple of paperback books to support your head in the bit of the class known as ‘constructive rest’.
I’M NOT IN PERFECT HEALTH AT THE MOMENT, WILL IT BE OK IF I DON’T DO EVERYTHING YOU SUGGEST IN THE CLASS?
This is the place where we explore how to think and move with less tension and without force. No one is going to make you do anything that is too much for you on any level. When we ourselves make the decision to take action (or not) we come into balance. This practice will help with feeling OK about doing less when you’re back in the outside world.
I’M 18 – AM I TOO YOUNG TO COME ALONG?
Because this Technique looks at choice and decision making it really helps if you yourself have made the final decision and you aren’t coming just because your Mum/Dad/Gran/Music Teacher thinks it would be a good idea. We offer a concession for students. Sarah and Ruth have both worked with teenagers who have benefitted in many ways especially around the areas of exam stress, hunched posture, playing music and taking up their rightful space in the world.
I’M 89 – AM I TOO OLD?
Nope. If you still have mobility and are happy being out and about and your mind is sharp you will be fine. We will be looking at how our thinking effects movement – it’s not a fast-paced exercise or fitness class. This is a turbo-charged mind work-out which happens to benefit the physical side of things. Sarah’s oldest student was in her nineties and she regularly works with octogenarians.
I’VE DONE SOME ALEXANDER BEFORE. WOULD I STILL BENEFIT FROM COMING ALONG?
We would love you to come and everyone would benefit from your experience. As you know, learning this Technique is an ever-deepening process and working with different teachers can give a fresh view-point.
WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE ALL SIX SESSIONS?
We will revise and recap on a regular basis during the course so you won’t feel left out or feel that you’ve missed any essential pieces of the jigsaw.
WILL THERE BE HOMEWORK?
Yes! But the kind of homework that might feel more like playing and experimenting and you’ll be practicing on the simple everyday tasks that you do anyway.
I CAN’T MAKE THIS COURSE – WILL THERE BE OTHERS?
Yes! Please let us know and we’ll put you on our mailing list.
We hope this helps but don’t hesitate to give one of us a ring if you have any other questions.
Hope to see you there!
