Teachers' Refresher Courses
Small ‘Hands-on’ groups
2, 3 or 4 teachers
My favourite way of working with teachers is in small hands on groups of 2-4 teachers. So I am now opening up these popular sessions to more teachers. It’s a chance to work in a focused way on the use of your hands in teaching and usually includes working on each other using the ‘classical’ way of taking a pupil in or out of a chair, with one hand on the occiput and the other under the chin.
This is ultimately quite a difficult thing to do really well, but has within it all the subtlety and power you need to generate in your hands from your entire body.
The way I teach this is a culmination of having been additionally trained in this skill by Dilys Carrington and my own 30 years of experience of both teaching and training students. I come to this as a thorough but simple way that engages your full attention. You can read more about my work here:
I am also happy to work with whatever you would like to study, maybe lifting a leg or working with a challenging pupil (you can even bring the pupil if you wish).
