Online or in-person


Lessons are taught in a one-on-one basis within a 40-minute timeframe.  Small group workshops are also available and beneficial within a 60-75 minute format. 


Lessons include sitting, standing, lying down, walking, and transitional movements.  Primary attention is given to the poise of the head and the lengthening of the spine.  Teachers use a gentle, guiding touch and verbal cueing.  Students learn a variety of tools and self-care strategies and discover how to integrate the principles into their lives.  


Students discover maximal benefits from weekly or twice weekly lessons.  8 to 12 lessons are recommended. Following this foundational period, students often continue with weekly or biweekly lessons, deepening their skills, or shift to a triweekly or monthly format for maintenance.  Each student’s pathway is unique. 


In-person lessons and online lessons are available.  Though the in-person lessons allow for hands-on guidance, the online lessons are immensely valuable for receiving practical, self-care tools.
