ATI (Alexander Technique International, one of the two major Alexander Technique professional organizations) has instituted a competence-based certification process. (For more information about this, click here.) Our students will decide, in consultation with us, when they feel prepared to enter that process. Success there, rather than completion of a set curriculum or length of training, will qualify them as professional Alexander teachers.
Our classes will be designed to lead to that success. Our approach is firmly based in traditional Alexander teaching procedures, body-mapping, improvisational teaching, group teaching, and the evolving application of principles of energy work to practicing and teaching Alexander's discoveries.
Our students will:
- clearly understand and communicate both the historical basis and present thinking about the Alexander Technique;
- demonstrate good use themselves in their activities, their lives, and their teaching;
- be able to facilitate the primary control in their own students;
- identify obstacles students are facing;
- and, with a variety of approaches available to them, help their students overcome those obstacles.
