Students will be expected to submit written summaries of the four books as well as written work on various aspects of the Alexander Technique, at the discretion of the Director. In addition to the practical and theoretical work, functional anatomy related to the coordinated use of the self will be studied. Voice-work will also form a part of the curriculum

The Alexander Technique has improved my posture so I’m more upright and seeing the top of buildings I’d never noticed for 20 years. It’s also helped with lower back pain and tightness in my upper back and neck. During the 6 months I’ve been learning the Technique I’ve had virtually no football injuries, and friends say I look younger. This has made a radical difference.
