Frequently asked questions

How many lessons do I need, and how often?
What happens in a lesson?
We always work 'in activity' - everyday things you do without usually giving much thought to. Even the simplest activities like sitting, getting up out of a chair and sitting back down again can be done more easily, with less tension. We might then move on to walking and other things you might do every day, e.g. driving, sitting at a laptop, writing, washing up, gardening, cycling, playing tennis or an instrument - you name it, we can make a lesson experience for it and come at it afresh - you might feel a bit like a kid again, it's fun!
Which are better, one-to-one or group classes?
Group classes are popular because:
having and seeing more kinds of interactions per session accelerates your learning;
seeing how others move and change accelerates your learning;
you have good laughs in group class which is also good for learning!
Do I need to wear anything special or bring anything?
No special clothes are needed. After the first few lessons, if you wish to choose an activity that involves bringing something, for example a musical instrument or sports racket, you are very welcome to bring it along.
