How long is a ball of string?
Is the correct answer to how many lessons do I need. Some pupils come for 5 sessions and have got what they came for, most take between 20-30 lessons,
while others make the Alexander Technique their 'way of life', taking occasional lessons to develop their use of the A.T. through the years.
