WHAT TO EXPECT
The Alexander Technique is a hands-on learning process. Typically we spend part of the lesson sitting, standing, walking, and moving, all the while discussing and applying theory of the Technique. We may work directly on your specific needs, for example an actor may practice breathing, a runner may practice lunging, a yogi may practice chaduranga. Then part of the lesson is spent on the massage table, face-up and fully clothed, with the teacher "organizing" the student and helping her/him experience more lightness and ease... you just have to come and try it out!

(The Alexander Technique) has made a difference physically, I am sure, as I don’t seem to be quite so physically tight all the time and I have less joint pain. I have arthritis in both knees, which then gets my hips...but more recently, not so much of a problem. The bigger difference is in dealing with anxiety and conflict. I have found that I tend to be much better able to stay fairly balanced, even during times when I reflexively want to lash out in some way, or when I normally find myself getting really uptight over a work situation etc.

Class with Eli was inspiring and centering. ...my breathing awareness deepened and I finally feel like I have successfully rolled up and down my spine! The individual hands-on attention, which felt incredibly subtle, but made an enormous difference to my ease of movement. I also got a great start on a new Shakespeare monologue.

My hat’s off to Eli for making me keep it simple while providing innovative ways to explore physically that unlocked meaning and emotion before I knew what hit me.
