Curriculum

A typical morning's work might include: 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").
Students in their final term may work under supervision with friends from outside the class. Graduates are welcome to visit the class at any time after completion of the course and are encouraged to do so as part of their ongoing professional development.

Additional notes

We frequently receive, and much welcome, visits from teachers and trainees from other schools. The working languages in the class are German and English.

I was looking for some way to help manage my lower back problems without relying on pain relief medication. I have found my one-to-one AT sessions extremely helpful and have learnt to identify and avoid postures and actions that contribute to back pain. I now know how to relax and properly rest my back and neck. In my experience, AT is a whole body technique which can help one to be more self-aware and to understand how to move with less tension and consequently, with less effort. Hurray for AT!
