If you’ve been coming for Alexander lessons with a PAAT teacher for a while, or attended one of our Introductory Courses, then you may want to find out more about how the Alexander Technique can help you.
On our Recreational Course you’ll meet others with an interest in the Technique and work at activities together.
This Course is designed to broaden your insight into the principles of the Alexander Technique and its application on a day-to-day basis. It takes its lead from Towards Perfect Posture by PAAT’s founder Brian Door and you’ll use this book as a guide along the way.
Each session includes practical work and a stimulating talk, along with hands-on help from qualified teachers.
The Recreational Course is based in Birmingham and takes place on Thursday evenings from 7pm till 9.30pm.
The fee for the Recreational Course is paid termly.
(This course is also open to students who have completed a module in Alexander Technique and Performance at the University of Birmingham, the BA (Honours) Dance course at de Montfort University, or who have attended classes and/or lessons at the Birmingham Conservatoire for at least one year. It is also open to students who have completed all three levels of one of our Education for Life courses or Mindfulness through the Alexander Technique courses, or have a recommendation from a teacher that progressing from one-to-one lessons and studying in greater depth with others would be of benefit.)
An online version of the Recreational Course is also available, and you can find details about PAAT’s online teaching provision here.
All PAAT teachers have completed a four-year training course, and those working online have done CPD in virtual teaching. They are fully insured to work with individuals or groups and are bound by PAAT’s Code of Conduct.
