Private ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE lessons

Private lessons with a qualified teacher are one of the most effective ways to learn AT. Completely individualized and adaptable, private lessons give students the freedom to work however they need (seated, supine, upright and moving through space, all of the above) on whatever they want (easing tension, activities of daily life, working with mobility aids, etc). Teachers use gentle hands-on feedback, dialogue about the student's experiences, and discussion of various concepts to introduce helpful information to the student. Teachers who have EDS/HSD themselves OR who have been intensively trained on how to work with hypermobility are the most qualified to teach hypermobile students.
