brigitte and Francis form a dedicated partnership in life (since 2002) and in work. They are as inspiring and dynamic as teacher trainers at the Montreal School of the Alexander Technique as they were as teacher/performers of Argentine Tango (2002-2019).
After graduating from a 3 year (1,600 hours) teacher training course, the certified teacher must continue to engage in continued postgraduate work with master teachers and have a minimum of 10 years teaching practice before embarking on the training necessary to become the director of an Alexander Technique Canada certified teacher training course. An assistant trainer must also engage in ongoing postgraduate work with master teachers and have a minimum of 5 years of teaching experience.
Francis and brigitte also offer private A.T. lessons outside school hours.

After studying Alexander Technique on and off for decades, I finally made it to Montreal where I was able to study with both brigitte and Francis as a guest student in association with their A.T. teacher training program. What a wonderful experience it was! brigitte and Francis are two of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their knowledge of the technique, their canny awareness of the educational aspect of the form, as well as their personable approach really allowed me to come away with new insights from every session. In each session, they were able to adapt to the needs, curiosities, or physical challenges I was facing and offer me seeds of knowledge that were transformative as I moved back into the world. I am extremely grateful for their knowledge, for being able to witness how they train others, and I will be certain to come for lessons any time I return to Montreal.
