Curriculum

The course will offer a balanced programme of practical and theoretical work. In the practical work, the emphasis will be on learning the skill of using the hands. Alexander's four books will be studied as well as other literature and articles relating to the Alexander Technique. 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

I have suffered back pain for a long time and the last 15 years have been a merry-go-round of doctors, drugs and complementary therapies. At the end of my second Alexander session I started to ease into the process. I followed my teacher's instructions between sessions, and found I could focus on my body, its movements and its tensions. It now seems possible to be free of pain and my usual cocktail of painkillers is no longer necessary. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the technique.
