One On One Lessons

Lauren working with a private studentI primarily teach one on one out of my studio in the Summit Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, MN. Working with you one on one allows me to focus each lesson on your unique habits, needs and learning style.

If you are new to the Alexander Technique I suggest an introductory course of three lessons in three weeks. This allows you to gather enough information about the Technique and my teaching style to decide if a course of study is the right thing for you.

How many lessons you should take depends on several things: your current conditions, your goals and how much you are willing to explore what you learn in your lessons on your own.

Some students get what they want in three lessons. On the other end of the spectrum, I have students who have studied with me for several years as they find the lessons continue to help them in many unexpected and wonderful ways.

Lessons are weekly. Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally but from what you do consistently.

Lessons are by appointment only

Tuesday (9 am—noon)
Wednesday (9 am—5 pm)
Thursday (9 am—5 pm)
Friday (9 am—5 pm)
Saturday (9 am—noon)

Studio Policies

Payment is expected in full at the time of the lesson or if purchasing a lesson package, at the first lesson. Cash and checks only. Make checks payable to: Alexander Teaching Studio LLC.

The studio has a 24 hour cancellation policy. Students will be asked to pay for the lesson in full if they do not cancel the lesson within 24 hours of its scheduled time.

Lesson packages must be used by the expiration date. There is no refund or credit for lessons not taken by the package expiration date.

Lessons are 50 minutes. I do my very best to run on time. I expect my student to do the same. If you are late arriving for your lesson, do not expect it to run over to make up for the late start.

Group Classes

A group class can be a fun way to get an introduction to the Technique. Although you don’t get the individual attention that one on one lessons offer, you will benefit from the group dynamic. I offer two formats of group classes. See below for information on next group class.

Exploratory Workshops are kept small, allowing for a limited amount of individual hands on guidance from the teacher as well as group experiential activities and discussion. They are typically held at the studio.

Community Education Classes (offered through St. Paul Community Education) introduce students to basic ideas from the Alexander Technique while exploring a particular topic such as posture or balance. These classes are a combination of experiential activities and discussion. The size of these classes does not allow for individual hands on guidance from the teacher.

All group classes are geared toward those with no prior experience with the Alexander Technique, but anyone is welcome to attend or repeat a class.

Upcoming Community Education Classes

The next Community Education Class will be offered in Fall 2017.

Custom Workshops and Presentations

Customized workshops and presentations can be arranged for your group. Please contact the studio for details and pricing.
