Alexander Technique Teacher Training

  • Completed 1600 training focused on the principles of the Alexander Technique, embodiment of those principles, and teaching those principles to others. Emphasized hands-on work, movement observation and analysis, sensory awareness, teaching and learning theory, basic anatomy and kinesiology or body mechanics, and applications to daily life.

Post-Graduate Certificates of Study

  • Human Developmental Movement.  Focused on understanding human developmental movement from infancy to adulthood and practical applications to Alexander Technique lessons to help students improve natural coordination. Included exploration of the Dart Procedures, a movement sequence based on the work of one of the foremost anatomists and anthropologists of the 20th century (Raymond Dart) and Alexander Technique teachers' Joan and Alex Murray.
  • Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (HSD) and Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS).  Focused on scientific and medical expertise around HSD/EDS and how to adapt and apply the Alexander Technique principles to help students with these conditions (and others facing connective tissue issues like most of us do as we age) to find stability within their instability, creating greater fluidity and ease.  Included hands-on work with the HSD/EDS community.
Change involves carrying out an activity against the habit of life.
