Robin and Béatrice Simmons have been leading training courses in England and Switzerland since 1982, and have qualified many teachers who practise worldwide. Their curriculum is based on a recognised programme initiated by STAT (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique, UK) and has been appropriately adapted for trainees in Bangalore. Robin and Béatrice are committed to a high standard of training, and plan to invite moderators and guest teachers once the programme is fully established.
Trainees will gain tools to support their continuous learning, both personally and professionally. Body, mind, and spirit will be addressed equally. As the programme allows for rolling admissions, trainees will be guided along individual paths, learn how to work on themselves, and gain insight into how F.M. Alexander made his discoveries.
Please note: only people who successfully qualify through the teacher training programme can go on to teach the Alexander Technique.
Training in the presence of the Heads of Training
Each week of group work includes one 20-minute individual session at a day/time TBD.
Programme of Self-Observation and General Observation
Working on oneself is essential to the training. Students must seek out examples of good and poor use around them. By being continuously on the lookout for patterns of use in themselves and others, they develop observation skills. Students will submit regular and scheduled reports on their work in private and in groups. The observation programme involves dedicating seven hours a week for 36 weeks to the practice. General attention and observation should continue into daily life throughout the year.
Theory, Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Psychology
Zoom sessions with the Robin and Béatrice will keep students on track. The sessions will include visual demonstrations and discussions. The virtual meetings will happen on Thursdays, 6–8 PM IST on the following dates in 2019:
