To care for the safety of all of us, lessons have been online since March, and will continue to be offered online until further notice. A limited number of in person lessons may begin in late August for current students.
For new students, there are still benefits to beginning the Alexander Technique at this time, without hands-on instruction. During online lessons we do guided lying down practice, to learn to be more present in yourself, especially during stressful or fearful times. We explore the ways in which we are responding, that we may not be so aware of, that may add to discomfort, headaches, pain, anxiety and depression.
In in person lessons I will be taking a number of precautions including the use of masks (and shields for myself), distancing between hands-on instruction time, and part or all of the lesson may take place outdoors on a covered lanai. When in person lessons begin, I will be teaching a very limited number, to give enough time to clean and ventilate between lessons.
“Life is not a tension anywhere except in the minds of humanity. To take life with ease, without any tension, without any hurry — that is not laziness, that is easiness.” Osho
