Curriculum

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.

Theoretical work includes daily reading from classics of Alexander literature. Japanese translated materials are used if available. Other studies include anatomy and body mapping for a deep understanding the physical structure of the human body, and various movement and activities using Alexander Technique. Throughout the training course, several written papers and projects are required. In the final year students start creating model lessons and begin working with real pupils under the supervision of the instructors. Please contact us for more information. Application materials in Japanese will be sent out on request.

I have been doing the Alexander Technique for ~2 years now... and am a lighter and faster runner than I was 10 years ago!
