In addition to offering private lessons and workshops to the general public, the Alexander Technique Center of Albuquerque offers a teacher training course for those who want to become Alexander Technique teachers and for those who want the experience of an intensive course of study.
“I can’t imagine a better training course… Your generosity, humility, curiosity and genuineness taught me just as much as the Alexander Technique did. Thank you for offering your transformative skills to me and the world.” Suzanne P.
The course is a three-year, 1600-hour program. Class meets 4 mornings a week, 39 weeks a year. There is a maximum 5:1 student teacher ratio. Tuition is about $7,000 a year (2020), with a 3% (or less) increase each fall.
Graduates of the teacher training program at AT-ABQ will be eligible for certification by the American Society for the Alexander Technique, AmSAT. AmSAT is the only professional organization in the United States that meets international standards for the certification of teachers and teacher-training.
“You provide a lovingly generous environment for learning to take place. Thank you.” – Pamela B.
“Thank you for an amazing week of self-discovery!” – Genoa D.
How we use ourselves is the most important skill in being an effective AT teacher. The training course provides a supportive environment where trainees improve their own use and gain a deeper understanding of the principles of the Alexander Technique. Trainees become comfortable with teaching procedures and start gaining the ability to use them as flexible teaching tools. Each trainee develops the skill to continue improving both in daily life and throughout their teaching career.
“Karen makes learning the Technique an approachable, organic experience laced with good energy and fun. I highly recommend her training course to anyone considering training in the Alexander Technique.” Shelley G.
