The Brighton Alexander Technique College is a Carrington style-training course, evolving our practice from the renowned skills of Walter & Dilys Carrington. Read about Dilys's work
Walter ran Alexander's own training course and took over at Alexander's death in 1955. He ran a remarkable course, together with Dilys and other teachers up to his own death in 2005. Dilys was a very creative teacher who influenced the development of what is known as 'hand-on' skills, the subtle, elastic quality of the the whole body that defines a good Alexander teachers hands.
Carolyn Nicholls, Head of Training, was privileged to have been trained by Walter and Dilys Carrington at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London, qualifying in 1982, she undertook a Masters' degree in Alexander Teacher Training and examined and deepened the skills she learned. This forms the basis of today's training.

Carolyn combines the richness of her experience with fresh and innovative ways of teaching. It was very exciting to be taught by a teacher who was intensely involved with the Technique and was constantly discovering new aspects of it herself. Padmini Menon (Alexander Teacher- Bangalore, India)
The course has a clear and structured framework that is built on month after month, year after year. I strongly recommend this school to anyone. Susan Taber (Alexander Teacher- Rye)
