Teacher Training Program

Why train to become an Alexander Teacher in the Blue Mountains?

Our home in the Blue Mountains is one of the most beautiful natural areas in the world. We are surrounded by world heritage area.  90 minutes from Sydney, it retains a village feel. Accommodation is much cheaper in the Blue Mountains than Sydney. There are also many jobs available in the tourist & associated industry here.  You’ll pay less to live and less to train.

Your accredited teacher training will cost significantly less than Alexander training anywhere else in the world. Nevertheless, training is complete and to a high standard.

What’s our vision?

We have designed an in-depth immersion into Alexander Technique.  Our aim is to provide a comprehensive journey of discovering yourself. Develop a profound knowledge and understanding of yourself and of others.

How do I learn?

Our teaching method arranges the learning in four integrating areas.

  1. Exploring Alexander Technique
  2. Articulating Alexander Technique
  3. Instructing Alexander Technique
  4. Professional Identity.

Each area is explored in detail and sequenced for personal development and insight over the life of the course and beyond.
