Learning the Alexander Technique with Gail Barlow
Individual Alexander Technique sessions at her clinics on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Wellness Centre, Northallerton in North Yorkshire. A preliminary assessment and introductory session is advised in order to determine the suitability of the work to an individual's needs.
One-to-one sessions are the most usual and obviously the most effective method of learning the Technique, since 100% personal verbal and 'hands-on' attention can be given to the individual and to their problems/needs. Individual sessions can be for general issues or tailored specifically for performing artists.
Gail also runs occasional days of individual taster sessions in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at various locations throughout North Yorkshire and Co. Durham, including Richmond, Northallerton and Barnard Castle.
