Online Lesson with Paul Aoki

Experience Aoki Method, Evolved Alexander Technique

Everybody has a different problem in their use of the body. In an online lesson, I can see the way you use your body, and I can give you specific advice tailored to you personally. I also give you effective exercises so that you can learn the new and advantageous way faster.

My lesson is different from ordinary Alexander Technique lessons. It is reasonable (no puzzles in theory), and what you need to do is clear so that you don’t get lost. You will experience the feeling of lightness, smootheness, release, or less effort right in the lesson.

There will be a translation assistant in the group lesson (Robb Feldhaus), and he will facilitate communication.

What I can give you advice about:

  • posture
  • movement
  • speaking/voice
  • breathing

Some of the problems which can be improved are:

  • chronic back pain, neck/shoulder pain, knee/hip joint pain
  • stage fright
  • problem with the voice
  • problem of breathing
  • strain, efforful ways of doing

The applicable fields are:

  • playing musical instrument(any kind), singing
  • acting
  • playing sports(running, swimming, many game sports like tennis, soccer, baseball, etc.)
  • dancing (any kind)
  • house work/daily activity
  • working (sitting for a long time, typing, talking, repetitive movement, etc.)

Through this lessons, you will get:

  • better presence in public
  • better performance result
  • more ease in life
  • prevention from physical problems

You should take this lessons if you:

  • still have problem even after having AT lessons or other methods
  • have some puzzles in learning the AT or wondering whether you are doing all right or not
  • want to improve by yourself not just by the teacher in the lesson
  • want to explore our advantageous way of using the body

Paul’s teaching methods are remarkably simple, clear and effective. I enjoyed how he describes how we can use our support, the support structures of our bodies in a more advantageous way, than we do usually do in our familiar patterns. I found myself connecting with the floor through my feet. This is the foundation for the rest of my body. He illustrated clearly that I am a 3 dimensional expanding and contracting structure, and that if I hold tension, especially in my abdominal muscles, this interferes with my breathing in a very obvious way. I experienced this, in a little walking exercise and found that I was able to release a sense of contraction in my abdominal muscles and my breathe deepened. It felt great.
I think Paul has a profound understanding of how the body works as a whole and a great talent in the field of Alexander technique teaching. It is rare to come across someone who can articulate ideas so clearly that learning is quick and effortless. I think he has the potential to help many, many people with posture, mechanical back pain issues, or anyone who feels that they are holding bodily tension. I would highly recommend him as a teacher.
