Blue Mountains Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique teacher training

with Michael and Jane Shellshear. Sydney & Leura NSW

Our training course commencing 2023, will be held at new premises in Sydney’s North Shore as well as at Leura. This will provide individuals wishing to train to teach, the only AUSTAT approved training school in NSW and in Sydney.

Jane and I have been working with Alexander Technique principles since before we met, thirty years ago, at the Alexander Technique Associates centre in Artarmon. Together, over many years, we have discussed, refined, researched and networked to develop an evolving understanding for human potential using Alexander Technique as our focus.

A transformational process

People who wish to work with us to develop profound understandings of human functioning will experience transformational change in how they move, think and feel. The emphasis of our training is your process. Visiting teachers from diverse fields will make your training balanced and complete.

We are privileged to have US neuroscience educator, Stefanie Faye, agree to be on our faculty. Her insights into neuroscience are inspiring.  Also on faculty, Helen Thomson is a senior, Sydney-based teacher, who works with actors at NIDA. She will travel from time to time to share her work and her experience with us.

We will milestone your process of investigation and provide you with profound instructional and communication skills, so that, should you wish, you will be accredited to teach others this extraordinary technique.

Part of the Australian Alexander Technique professional community

Our involvement in the Alexander community will open doors for you to meet and work with amazing Alexander teachers from all around Australia and the world; to network with other accredited training schools around Australia. We will visit and be visited by teachers from Tasmania and Victoria as well as visits by overseas guests.

AUSTAT Accredited Training

This Alexander Technique teacher training course will be accredited by AUSTAT and recognised by STAT affiliated societies around the world. AUSTAT recognition is an important standard of quality training within Australia.
