Want a focussed experience with the Alexander Technique? Consider a short-term intensive.
Have one-on-one mini-lessons (“turns”) five days a week with teachers and current trainees. Participate in discussions, lectures, demonstrations and other class activities. Course curriculum includes anatomy, movement exploration, reading of material by F.M. Alexander, and consideration of Alexander Technique principles in daily life.
Who should consider an Intensive?
Anyone who’s had Alexander Technique lessons and wants more. This experience is for students who are interested in pursuing a unique intensive experience in the Alexander Technique. If you are considering our three-year Teacher Training Course, this is a good introduction. The hours on an Intensive count toward the ATI-LA Teacher Training Course requirements at the discretion of the Director(s). The Intensive alone does not lead to certification, and is not considered teacher training without satisfactory completion of the three-year course.
Applicants are required to have had 20–30 lessons in the Alexander Technique.
Length of Intensive
Join the Teacher Training Course for six weeks. (Five- or seven-week intensives can also be arranged.) Class meets Monday through Friday 9:30am–12:30pm.
