Members of ATMR have completed teacher trainings and post-graduate work around the world. Most have been certified by one or both of the following professional associations of Alexander Technique teachers:
The American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT) or Alexander Technique International (ATI).
Considerations when choosing a teacher:
Each teacher is an individual. Like learning anything else, it is important for the AT student to find the teacher who is right for them. You may wish to have lessons with one or more teachers until you find your best fit.
Don’t jump to conclusions. Alexander Technique may surprise you in unexpected ways. It might be wise to leave time for it to start sinking in before you choose whom to work with or how long of a commitment to make.
Teachers may have more than one teaching location. Some teachers will also work with you onsite. This might be at your place of work, in your home, or while running or cycling or working out.
Teachers may price their lessons differently. Ask your teacher about their prices. Do they have a 24-hour cancellation policy? Do they offer bulk discounts? Sliding scale? Free lessons when you send them a new student? Teachers appreciate when students want the relationship to benefit both sides.
