The Alexander Technique is most frequently and effectively taught in individual, private lessons, as it is learned through hands-on experience. This also allows Sarah to tailor the lesson to meet the specific needs and interests of the student.
Private lessons involve table work, which facilitates the release of excess tension, and activity work, which helps you find freedom from unwanted postural habits. The process of undoing these habitual tensions allows for the return of your natural coordination and flexibility.
Students are encouraged to bring in activities from their daily lives (walking, sitting, working on a computer) or specialized activities (yoga, singing, playing a musical instrument, acting, sports, etc).
Small Groups are a more economical way to study the Alexander Technique. They are especially helpful for visual learners, as working in a group setting provides ample opportunity to observe/hone your observational skills.
Small Groups will explore table work and activity work together; the interest and experience level of the students determine the course of study.
Small groups are available depending on interest. You may either coordinate your own small group of 2 - 3 people or simply express your interest to receive more information about availability.
Group Classes & Workshops
Group Classes and Workshops are a fantastic and efficient way to introduce the Alexander Technique to a larger population. The content of these sessions varies depending on group interest/intent, but will always include an introduction to the Alexander Technique and an exploration of the basic principles in activity (ie: singing, dancing, acting, yoga, working at a computer, etc.).
Sarah has taught workshops to various groups including choirs (professional and collegiate), bands, voice studios, acting/theater departments, and martial arts classes. She currently teaches on-going group classes at UCLA for those with back pain, stress, and physical discomfort.
Sarah is available to give Group Classes and Workshops in the greater Los Angeles area.
