What training is required to be an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique?
AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique teachers have completed 1,600 hours of training over a minimum of three years in an AmSAT-approved training program maintaining a five-to-one student/teacher ratio, as specified in the AmSAT Bylaws.
Teachers of the Alexander Technique are trained in careful visual observation to be able to determine the source of movement problems. They are also trained to be able to communicate expansion and lightness of movement through the kinesthetic sense. They learn teaching skills that encourage learning in a non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere. Additional learning includes anatomy, study of F.M. Alexander’s writings, literature and research by scholars of the Alexander Technique and related fields.
