PRIVATE LESSONS WITH ELAINE KOPMAN
During a series of lessons the pupil gradually acquires a tool to help him/her find a way of
dealing with faulty co-ordination that can cause so many of the problems and injuries which are
common to all of us as we go through life. This mal-coordination is often the result of deeply
ingrained habits that are learned from a very young age.
These habits become the basis of our daily response to life. In an Alexander lesson we learn
how to unlearn these pervasive habits, gradually liberating us from our muscle-bound existence.
The object of the Alexander Technique is to make us conscious of our habits and to give us the tools for change. As a result, aches and pains disappear, posture improves and we gain an over-all sense of well-being.
Lessons are available on an individual basis and are useful for adults and children of all ages.
Some of the more common problems dealt with are:
The Alexander Technique benefits musicians, singers, dancers, athletes and anyone whose work demands skills and long hours of practice. It has also helped many people with problems of concentration or learning disabilities.
