Your first lesson in the Alexander Technique with Malcolm with involve an assessment of the way you move, your posture, and how you sit and stand. He may look at how you sit at a desk. If you are a musician Malcolm will also look at how you play, and if you are a runner he’ll be interested in how you run.
Malcolm may use his video camera in order to give you a better idea of how you stand and move, and to illustrate any things you are doing that might be contributing to pain or discomfort.
You will get introduced to the concept of active rest (see above) where Malcolm will get you to lie down on a treatment table with your legs bent into a “A” shape and your back supported by the table. This position is important to learn as it is something you can start practising yourself from day one.
Alexander Technique is a hands-on approach so Malcolm won’t just talk you through anything he’d like you to do, he’ll use his hands to give you the experience of moving, standing, and performing in a different way.
At the end of the first lesson Malcolm will give you an idea of how many lessons he thinks you should have, and give you an idea of things you can be working on outside your time in class. You can begin work on the process of change right away.
Lessons with Malcolm last for 45 minutes.
