The Alexander Technique is a psychophysical practice that uses many tools including attention, observation and an understanding of how the human organism works in action.
In Times of COVID-19
During the pandemic, professional training to become a teacher is available without interruption. Since June 25, 2020, the school remains open, with the exception of the first two weeks of January 2021. Other group sessions are not permitted at this time, but we are here to offer you individual lessons according to the health instructions for COVID-19 by the ministry of Santé et des Services sociaux of the Gouvernement du Québec. Please be assured that sanitary measures will be applied to preserve the health of all. During your first appointment I will send you the protocol to follow.
We will be offering an introduction to the A.T. in 10 sessions during 5 weeks, for small groups of beginners. Due to COVID-19 this is not currently possible, but contact us to learn more or to let us know if you are interested.
Intensives, Workshops and Introductory Sessions for Everyone
Although the three-year teacher training program is the school’s main focus, we are happy to create A.T. introductory workshops to suit your needs. It is a dynamic way to discover what it has to offer. Here is a sample workshop:
- An Exploration of the Mind-Body Connection in Action: Understanding the dynamics of postural reflex for conscious living.
Interested? Get a group together and contact us.

In a nutshell, the Alexander Technique is an art in living.
It addresses physical discomfort, strain, pain and injuries;
improves your stamina for paying attention, being present and so, your power of observation;
alleviates nervous and chronic tension in the preparation and performances of all kinds;
enhances every aspect of life.
There is no one who would not benefit from a course of lessons.
Alexander did not give people who came to him a kind of medical treatment, but rather what he gave them was a re-education through a process developing their awareness about their behaviour.

It gives the opportunity to be physically fit without being athletic.
