Taking a course of one-on-one lessons with a qualified teacher is by far the most effective way to make progress with the Alexander Technique. A typical lesson generally lasts for 45 minutes. The teacher will facilitate the student’s progress with hands-on guidance and verbal cues.
Everyone has their own pace and needs; however, it is recommended that a student commit to a series of lessons in order to experience the cumulative effect. Compare the process to taking music lessons: you won’t come away from one or two lessons knowing how to play a brand new instrument. Some people are happy to acquire the basics and continue working on their own; others will take lessons for years and delve into the subtleties that the work has to offer. It is a matter of personal preference.
