Benefits of Alexander Technique Group Classes
If you are interested in the Alexander Technique and enjoy learning in groups, my weekly class starting on Thursday 12th May in Otley may be just the thing for you. Group classes work better for some people than traditional one-to-one lessons. Here are just a few reasons why:
The opportunity to learn from others
Discussing ideas in a group can help us understand concepts that we might find difficult on our own. Also, working in pairs or small groups gives us the chance to notice how others move, which can help us recognise how common some habits are. We might even recognise similar habits in ourselves!
Groups reduce the focus on individuals
Whilst some people enjoy one to one lessons where the focus is on them for the whole time, others are less comfortable with them. Group sessions work well in this instance as the focus naturally shifts between the entire group and different people within it at various times.
Groups are more affordable
Groups are more cost-effective than a series of individual lessons, which makes the Alexander Technique accessible to more people. They provide an excellent introduction to the Technique; although some people, having enjoyed a group, then choose to have one-to-one lessons.
Groups run on set days and times
Some people like the discipline of attending a class on the same day at the same time each week; it can make it easier to commit to the time.
Group learning is fun!
Groups offer the opportunity to meet people we might otherwise not have met. Break times, in particular, are great for getting to know people and possibly developing new friendships.
