Marian's Intensives have been pivotal weeks in my understanding and practice of Alexander Technique. While I've been enjoying all the benefits that come with weekly lessons, I've made exponential progress during the Intensives.
The experience of daily lessons is so transformative, I do whatever I can to participate in the Intensives every time they are offered.

I was able to participate in one of Marian’s intensives, and the results were striking. My weekly lessons up to that point had been helpful, and had produced steady improvements in my posture, ease of motion, and comfort with everyday tasks. The intensives greatly accelerated these improvements. Instead of waiting a week or two in between lessons, I was able on each consecutive day to improve immediately upon what we had accomplished the day before.
I have never felt better after leaving an Alexander lesson than I did at the conclusion of the fifth day; my footsteps felt lighter, I found myself gliding deftly into the driver’s seat of my car (a move that is normally clumsy and awkward for me), and my wife even told me that I looked noticeably taller! Marian’s intensives are a must for anyone who has found success with the Alexander Technique and wants to feel even better.
