Curriculum

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").
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 started the Alexander Technique due to slight scoliosis and a stretched nerve in my left lower back and I thought it would improve my posture which could only help my injury! I've got far more out of the technique than just improved posture! The first thing that I've learned is how to work with my Alexander Technique teacher and my body to control the pain! When the horrible muscle spasms start, I can now use breathing to help instead of lying on the floor helpless.
