We need a teacher to guide us, to help us to be aware of our patterns and to re-educate our sensory perception so that it becomes reliable. Through the new experiences that the lessons bring, the process of change, learning and control of the self begins.

Practising the Alexander Technique does not involve doing exercises but rather exploring what you have learned in lessons and applying this to all daily activities. In general, a basic recommendation is to practise "conscious and constructive rest" every day.

Lessons normally last between 30 and 60 minutes, as agreed by the teacher and student.

It is recommended that lessons are taken as often as possible at the beginning, two or three times a week, and then after that once a week for several weeks. After this period, it is recommended that follow-up lessons are taken from time to time.
