Established Training Course
Since 1990, we have trained people from all over the world, graduating over 100 teachers who now teach in many overseas countries as well as Brighton and all over the UK. Becoming an Alexander Teacher is an exciting journey of gaining professional skills, personal growth and development. One of our graduates has returned to India as the first resident AT teacher in the country.
"Come in, lie down, do nothing"
Our training day starts with semi-supine, a practical procedure that encourages deep release of long held tension patterns and reorganization of postural support. It is an active process although from the outside it looks simple, it is an exploration of Use and Functioning; and it's a wonderful way to start the learning day.
