Work With Me

I’m Garnett Mellen, teacher of the Alexander Technique. I also teach stretch, yoga, QiGong, and waltz. I can help you move with more easy through the tasks of everyday living.

Private lessons are an opportunity to go further with the exploration of physical wellbeing. I usually work with my students in the following way:
+ Start private work with 12 Alexander lessons over the course of three months.
+ Some students benefit from continuing to have weekly or monthly lessons.
+ Periodic blocks of 12 lessons continue to be a great way to refresh and deepen awareness of the physical body.

To arrange lessons contact me at email:, or call: 434-422-0961.

The current rate for Alexander lessons is $70/hr.
I offer packages of 12 forty-five minute lessons for $600.

It takes time to understand Alexander’s principles, and it is non-trivial to put them into practice.

Once a student begins the journey, they will be forever changed. Contact me to begin.
