As a relatively new Alexander school, we were delighted to see our first graduate of the 3-year teacher training course in July 2022.
Cath Roberts, BA, MSTAT
I graduated from EATS in 2022 and am now teaching in Aberdeenshire. I first stumbled across the Alexander Technique in 1989 at Art School (GSA) when a fellow student felt compelled to tell me about it (I had my ‘STOP’ word painting on show). She put me in Alexander’s ‘position of mechanical advantage’. I found it intriguing…important and seemed to instantly show up the unnecessary holding I was doing. I was hooked. She also added…’ye know you could teach this’. I never forgot those words but didn’t have the boldness to enrol until I eventually did many years later. I now realise that I, like every other teacher and student of this intelligent, practical, and preventative technique, is on an Alexander ‘journey’.
An additional five people to date have completed our Foundation course, which provides an opportunity for immersive learning in the Alexander Technique for those who may not want to do the full 3-year training.
