Welcome to the Alexander Teacher Training School
Our bright and vibrant school is London’s centre for excellence in Alexander Technique teacher training. It offers a unique fusion of personal development and vocational training in an inspiring professional space.
“ I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve. “ Albert Schweitzer
FM Alexander began training teachers in 1931. At the ATTS we remain committed to Alexander’s original principles, vision and methods of training.
” Learning from the Past, Inspired by the Future “
Our Teacher Trainers have worked closely with, and learnt from, the first generation of Teachers to be trained by Alexander himself, including Dr Wilfred Barlow, Majorie Barlow, Patrick Macdonald, Walter Carrington and Miss Goldie. These teachers each contributed their own unique and profound understanding of the Technique and of training. Our students benefit from this rich and diverse Alexander legacy.
The ATTS Trainers represent some of the most experienced teachers in their respective fields, from Drama and Performance to Music and Medicine. We also have a diverse and creative team of visiting Trainers who offer their expertise in a variety of Alexander specialities.
Over the next pages you will find information on Alexander Technique Training at the ATTS such as the curriculum, the Alexander Technique Teacher Trainers, the aims and philosophy of our London Training School, and the term dates.
If you have any questions, we hope you will find answers in the Alexander Technique Training FAQ’s section, or on the other information pages.
For general information about the Alexander Technique as well as a huge resource of articles and blogs about the Technique, you can visit the website of the Alexander Studio by clicking on the Studio website link on the right hand side.
The ATTS also provides Alexander Teachers who offer individual Alexander Lessons. Please use the register button on right, and one of the Teachers will get back to you as soon as possible.
The school offers a unique Foundation Course in the Alexander Technique. This is usually of a term’s duration, but can be extended to two terms. Because Alexander Training can not be separated from personal development, the Foundation Course provides an opportunity for intense engagement with the Technique and a more powerful Alexander process than is traditionally offered by individual Alexander lessons alone.
Post-graduate Training is also available at the ATTS. Graduates from this school or other Training schools are invited to develop and enhance their skills to a higher level.
Visits to the school during Training time are very much welcomed, and visitors will be able to participate and receive individual work from the Trainers and students.
