Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from a session/lesson?
Sessions are highly individualized. At each lesson, there will be an opportunity to check in with where you are at and decide what would be best for the day. Most sessions include hands-on work and education to foster tools you can take with you. Wear comfy clothes.
Do I need to have an issue to come in for a session?
No. Come in exactly where you are, and we will decide what is just right for you that day. Having nothing “wrong” is a great place to dive into something new, just as having and issue or something specific you want to work with can give a great place to jump off.
How many lessons will I need?
This completely depends on where you are at and what your goals are. Because this work requires that you learn new ways of being and moving, I strongly encourage new students/clients to commit to at least 3 sessions in close proximity so that you give yourself a chance to see what the work is and how you can apply it. It takes time to learn what a new skill offers and how to use it.
Some people get a series of sessions to cultivate a certain skill or resolve an issue (the specific number of sessions varies and is discussed when we see how you are responding to the work). Many others end up doing the work at regular intervals for regular support and self-care, developing more ease on an ongoing basis, and developing a deeper and deeper skill set around how to help yourself.
Can I only have hands-on work with no skill-building component?
Occasionally sessions are hands-on only, but most people who end up relishing the work come to have an interest in how to cultivate the kind of awareness, balance and ease one can achieve from integrating Alexander work into their life.
What is the Alexander Technique and what kind do you do?
The Alexander Technique is a hands-on modality that helps people notice how they do what they do. It cultivates presence, teaches natural movement, and helps people become aware of and change any kind of habit (thought, emotional, physical).
I have been trained in the lineage of Margorie Barstow, who felt it was important to work with people while they are doing the activity they are interested in working on, so that they directly apply what they are learning to their activity. Therefore, the work I do can happen on a bodywork table, while doing simple movements such as sitting, standing, walking, while doing any kind of activity, or a combination of these.
I often say that my work is rooted in the Alexander Technique, because while staying in the heart of the work, I also feel free to bring in all of my current and previous studies to my sessions. This allows me to meet each person, each time, with all I have to offer.
