Courses & Workshops
I am planning to run a course of 5 x 30 minute online lessons early in the new year (2021) on various aspects of the Alexander Technique:
using computer screens,
and sitting with comfort.
These are suitable both for beginners and for people who have had lessons. The course will cost £25 and will take place to suit the course participants. You will need access to a computer, a video and microphone (further details of what is needed, on my website). If you are interested, do get in touch.
Introduction to the Alexander Technique:
Please enquire if you are interested in doing an online introduction to the Alexander Technique course with me. Dates & times to suit participants. Here’s what it would entail:
Online until safe to go ahead face to face (Suitable for beginners)
- This is a 4 1/2 hour course for anyone interested in learning about the Alexander Technique. Places limited. Contact me to book (or phone – 01759 307282)
For your course fee of £50, you will get:
- A 1:1 interview before the session to discuss what you would like to get out of the course

4 Friends all wanting to do an Alexander Technique Introductory Workshop? –
- Contact me and I will organise a workshop or course in Pocklington at a time to suit you! Tailored to the participants.
- Many employers want to do more to support their staff, particularly those working in high pressure roles – and, if they have to do presentations or sit at computers for many hours at a time this adds its own challenges. Training in the Alexander Technique offers a very different solution to usual presentation skills, ergonomic or health & safety approaches, and one that is focused on empowering people to be able to come across confidently to an audience and take responsibility for their own health and well being. Each company is different, so I will offer a programme tailored to your specific needs, following consultation with you. Depending on individual company requirements, delivery could be group-based or one-to-one learning, or a mix of both. My previous experience suggests that a mix of group and individual learning provides an optimal programme for both the individual and the company.
