Learning with Yvette Daoust
Tailor-made Alexander teaching
At Barn Hill Alexander, lessons are one to one: you get my complete attention and you can learn in privacy. Each lesson includes a quiet time lying on a table while I put hands on and encourage you to release. My teaching room is peaceful and overlooks my garden.
What you learn at Barn Hill Alexander
The technique helps you to:
The Alexander pause that refreshes
We all tend to overcomplicate life. If we pause, we can choose. It might be a choice to move more simply when getting into or out of a chair for example, or walking, or opening a heavy door. In a lesson you look at such ordinary movements afresh. It might also be a choice to stay calm and quiet in the face of stress. Practising quiet in your movements can be a good path to finding emotional quiet.
Using your energy more efficiently
As well as gradually lessening stiffness or pain, Alexander lessons can be energising: when you waste less energy tensing up, you have more to spend on your loved ones, on your work, on what you value most in life.
