There are a great many useful resources available to help you with the learning process. They have all been collected at Alexander Technique Self Study and a good first approach to this page might be to go through it fairly quickly and read, listen to, or watch anything that grabs your attention. Later, you might want to re-visit the page and investigate it more thoroughly.
These videos can be useful on their own, or in conjunction with taking on-line lessons:

Constructive rest is a powerful self-help process that comes out of the Alexander Technique. This page has a wealth of information about it.
When you have started doing the Alexander Technique constructive rest at home, you many find that some of the conversations at the Alexander Technique Podcast and Alexander Talk make a nice accompaniment to that process. Or, if you download them to your phone, they can be conveniently listened to while commuting to and from work. (You can subscribe to the Podcast or by going to virtually any podcast app)
A number of blog posts at Body Learning Blog provide useful self-help information. If you do decide to take lessons with me, you’ll be receiving links to these, along with the Zoom link for your next lesson, when they relate to the material we’ve just covered.
