Courses & workshops

I run Alexander courses and workshops at my own practice in Portobello and at other venues in Edinburgh. These events are designed to introduce the Alexander Technique and help you decide if you would like to take it further by embarking on a series of one-to-one lessons. Courses and workshops provide some useful tips and tools to help you in your daily life.

Introductory workshops

I run regular introductory sessions for people who are new to the Alexander Technique and would like to find out about it in a cosy group setting. The next workshops that still has available spaces is:

  • Saturday 12th August (10am to 1pm; £30)

Workshops are suitable for people of all ages and levels of health/fitness. Places are limited to 6 people, so booking is essential and needs to be done in advance. The location is Joppa Road, Portobello. Please contact me to reserve a place, or for further details. Concessions available for unwaged.

Courses

  • 5-week follow-on course, on Tuesdays starting 15th August, 7.15−8.45pm (£75)
    This course is for people who have some prior experience of the Alexander Technique, either through attending a group introductory class or through lessons. It will be very practically based and will allow you to deepen your understanding and have more confidence in applying the Alexander Technique to make a difference in your life (Tuesday 15th August to Tuesday 12th September).
  • Mindful Movement, on Mondays starting 21st August for 5 weeks, 7−8.30pm (£75)
    Current lifestyles often force us into a combined state of physical immobility and over-stimulated minds. You will be guided through a sequence of gentle, subtle, floor-based movements that will develop week by week. The course is based on the Dart procedures and is informed by the Alexander Technique. It will help quieten minds and encourage flexibility and ease of movement, leading to a sense of calm, embodied self-awareness (Monday 21st August to Monday 18th September).

Places are limited  to a maximum of 6 people, so contact me to book, or to find out more. The location is Joppa Road, Portobello. Concessions available for unwaged.
