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 would not say I am a fan of the technique – I am a disciple. For many years I suffered with chronic neck pain following a horse riding accident. When my HR manager recommended the Alexander Technique I was intrigued. Her father, a stroke victim, had experienced an incredible recovery from practising the Technique – to the point where he no longer needed a walking stick. After the first lesson I felt a dramatic difference; my neck felt long and free like a giraffe.
