Curriculum: 

The purpose of the training is to develop an increase in sensory appreciation through inhibition and direction and to apply this process to hands-on work. Each day consists of individual work with different teachers, small group work with one teacher, class work using "games" (simple movements guided by a teacher), and a lecture. The emphasis throughout the course is to learn to explore your own use through games and activities. Hands-on skills will be developed in small groups of three students with one teacher. The practical work will be supplemented with the reading of relevant Alexander literature as well as anatomy and physiology relevant to the practice of the Technique. The day-to-day teachers will be Karen, assisted by Alison Harper (qualified 1990). There will be visiting senior and junior teachers, and teachers with specialist skills, for example, in the fields of voice, singing, creative movement, acting, horse riding, swimming and juggling.

I am relieved to be out of pain and to have found a technique that works for me. I hadn’t appreciated when I first started lessons how much of a positive impact the Alexander Technique would have in other areas of my life. Considering I only started Alexander Technique lessons for back pain, this has been an unexpected bonus!
