Alexander Technique Studio Tokyo Teachers training course

The course is run following the STAT guidelines. About 80 per cent of the teaching time is devoted to practical work, a process designed for acquiring a deeper understanding of the basic principles of the Alexander Technique.

Students are encouraged to refine their daily awareness and develop a way to convey their specialised skill into the teaching.

The policy of the course is to stay open minded for the students to develop their ability. They are gradually guided to develop hands-on work and other teaching skills in a lively laboratory.

A typical morning's work includes: individual hands-on work with the director or assistant teachers, learning practical and verbal teaching skills under supervision in small groups, reading and discussion of Alexander's books or other relevant literature, basic anatomy, physiology and neurology, application of Alexander Technique principles to everyday or more specialised activities ("directed activities").

During the course of the morning students receive 'turns' (short individual lessons), work in small groups of two to four developing the skilled use of their hands and have time to work on themselves. In the larger class group Alexander’s books are read and discussed, as is other relevant material including basic anatomy and physiology. Each day we also explore a particular procedure often related to developmental movement, or voice work or the application of the Technique to a particular activity. Students also receive two private lessons with the director each term.

York Alexander Technique School

The course follows STAT guidelines. About 80 per cent of the teaching time is devoted to practical work. Practical work is regarded as the main tool for absorbing the principles of the Alexander Technique:

    awareness of self, others and the world around,
    inhibition: stopping the going down of the same road and into the same ”holes” over and over again,
    directing: a way of newly aligning and tuning ourselves with freer and more flowing ways of responding to stimuli,

The Alexander Teacher Training School

Curriculum: At least 80% of the training will be practical work, in keeping with the fundamentally practical nature of the Technique. The core curriculum is based on Alexander’s basic principles, and will therefore cover the essential concepts of inhibition and directions, the unity of mind and body, doing and non-doing, the force of habit and false sensory. Each day there will be time for reading Alexander’s writings or other relevant material.

The Alexander Technique makes me feel more comfortable, poised and peaceful. I started lessons years ago and have kept them up because I love the body awareness they teach. The Technique helps me to let go of tension and feel better, not just during lessons, but always.
