Private Lessons

Is This for You?

The lessons are educational in nature. Like many worthwhile endeavors, there is effort of a subtle kind required, yet most people find the work enjoyable and look forward to their sessions. If you have even a minimal capacity to direct your own attention and the desire, you can learn the Alexander Technique. You will proceed safely at your own pace and apply this unique and powerful method to any activity or situation in your own life that you wish. 

Lessons in the Alexander Technique are taught one-to-one where the teacher can customize the content of each lesson to the individual student. Lessons are generally from 30–40 minutes in length and are scheduled at a mutually convenient time. Our studio is located within our home in a comfortable and easily accessible neighborhood in Urbana, Illinois. Wear clothing to a lesson that you can move in easily as you will be sitting, standing, bending and lying down. Pants and a comfortable top work best for both men and women.

The benefits of Alexander Technique lessons are seen over time. We suggest you begin with our Introductory Package of three (3) lessons. This initial series will help you and your teacher determine if lessons will be beneficial. After your introduction, a continuing series of 12 - 30 lessons will provide a good grounding in the Technique. As time and finances permit, students find the greatest benefit in frequently spaced lessons - a minimum of weekly. Frequency of lessons initially will assist in you recognizing the benefits you are gaining while renewing your commitment to their practice.

Fees & Details
$70 per lesson

Introductory Package (3 lessons) $180

Fee adjustments available for Seniors, Full-time Students and multiple weekly lessons by an individual or in Households where more than one individual takes lessons on a weekly basis. If you feel that lessons would be of benefit to you, please ask about fee adjustments that would fall within your budget. 

An often asked question is whether Health Insurance may be billed for payment. There are occasions when, with a prescription of a Technique-savvy physician or when on a flex plan, individuals have received some reimbursement from insurance. We can assist you with appropriate materials when talking with your doctor, but payment for lessons remains the responsibility of the student.

My personal experience with the Alexander Technique continues to excite me. I now walk, sit and stand more by choice and less by chance; my back is stronger and morning stiffness is virtually gone. Whether driving, typing or ironing, I am aware of my body as never before, and I am fascinated by this new sense of control.
