Edinburgh Alexander Training School (EATS) is based at Edinburgh’s seaside, Portobello and is currently the only approved Alexander Technique teacher training course in Scotland.

EATS is registered with, and approved by, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT). STAT is the original, largest and longest established professional body for Alexander teachers.

We offer a comprehensive professional 3-year training course leading to certification to teach the Alexander Technique. Graduates are certified by STAT through an independent assessment process; they are also eligible to register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council‘s UK Register of practitioners.

We also offer an intensive 12-week Foundation course for people wanting to deepen their Alexander skills, understanding and confidence for self-development, and for those who may be considering the full professional training but not yet ready to commit to it.

Training is usually on a full-time basis (four days a week) but part-time may be an option – get in touch if you’d like to discuss this possibility.

Participants benefit from working in a small group setting, with a student to trainer ratio of around 3 to 1.
