What happens in a lesson?

A lesson is an opportunity for you to talk and be listened to, to discuss and question in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.

We will look at FM Alexander’s ideas and principles and explore how they can help you

Veronica in action

We will work together to help you improve how you think and move in a chosen activity. Using my hands in light manipulation or guidance, I will encourage you to experience a new use of yourself, achieved by rethinking the movements within the activity and reducing the
amount of tension being created in your muscles.

Introductory Lessons

This is an easy way to find out how I teach and whether you would like to start a course of lessons.

The Introductory lesson is free at my home practice, and costs just £15 at Neals' Yard Therapy Rooms in Clifton.

Introductory Workshops

Every two months I run a two hour Introductory Workshop at Neals' Yard Therapy Rooms usually on a Saturday afternoon. This costs £10.

I can run an Introductory Workshop at workplaces, at festivals, at events of all sorts and for groups of friends or for CPD purposes. I can also run a half or full day workshop for larger groups. Rates for these are negotiable.

Introductory Course

I teach a 10 lesson Introductory Course which you can take as an individual or as part of a group. I also offer a 5 week taster course.

Individual and Group Lessons

There are advantages for each type of lesson.

In an individual lesson, you get the full attention of the teacher and a safe space to explore ideas that might be more private or sensitive. You may also get more "hands on" work and more time to explore movement and thinking in your chosen activity.

In a group lesson, as well as having "hands on" while doing some activity you can watch others while they are having a turn. This can give you ideas about how you can move differently or think differently about carrying out a similar activity You can also discuss with other students what you have seen and hear their views and ideas.

‘The lack of real happiness manifested by the majority of adults today is due to the fact that they are experiencing not an improving but a continually deteriorating use of their psycho-physical selves.’
