Dartmoor Weekend Retreat for Teachers of the Alexander Technique

Onetime session

If you feel that teaching the Alexander Technique, although wonderful, can be a bit of a solitary experience, then this is the ideal opportunity to take time out from your normal routine and make new connections.

Spend some time looking after yourself in the spectacular setting of  Dartmoor National Park.

This Weekend  Retreat is designed for likeminded people  to spend some informal time together in discussion and work share,  and / or to just chill out.  It is not intended to be a formal instructional event.  It is a great opportunity to enable Alexander Technique teachers of different length of experience ( newly qualified teachers and those with many years of experience) to meet together, make new connections and share practice.

 Stay two nights in the tastefully converted stone Farm buildings at Brimpts Farm, where all rooms are ensuite.  Fully inclusive, commencing with dinner on  Friday  and lunch on Sunday.  Traditional home cooked food; special dietary needs will be catered for subject to advanced notification.    Please contact Kay Cady for a paper based brochure or click here to download.

At about the age of 45, I began to experience severe pain in both of my knees. I was told I had damaged the cartilage, initially caused by the use of a kicking strap on a sailing dinghy, and made worse by many years of beagling, and to stop beagling or risk ending up in a wheelchair. A few years later a friend suggested the Alexander Technique. At first I was very sceptical, but had also reached the stage where I was ready to try virtually any means to solve the problem. A few weeks after my first lesson, I had gone out beagling, but only walking.
