Professional Development

Alumni Workshares

Once a term alumni and training course teachers get together at LCATT to share work.  This offers the opportunity for graduates to work with the LCATT community of teachers and to present ideas and work to the group.
At present these are still happening on Zoom.

Workshares for All Teachers

We hope the next free in-person workshare will happen again in the near future.
All teachers are welcome to the workshares at LCATT. You can just drop in or contact Roger – kidd.roger@gmail.com for more details.


Workshops and Talks

LCATT organises regular activities including talks from other disciplines that may relate to the Alexander Technique, forums with presentations about inspiring work being done within the Alexander Technique and workshops for visiting teachers from abroad. (See below for further information).

WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS

We are not running in-person workshops at the moment but occasionally do them online.

Past teacher’s workshops have included one with Missy Vineyard, author of a ‘How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live’; Lucia Walker, dance teacher and specialist in improvisation and many others.
We also offer workshops run by our LCATT team of teachers on different topics, often related to the theme we are working on in the training course, so that they can, for interest, be combined with a visit to the school.

An Introduction to Medau Rhythmic Movement –
 Ilana Machover well known Alexander and movement teacher.
Ilana will talk about Medau’s unique approach and the history of his work putting it in its historical context  — there were many people interested in “whole body natural  movements” at that time. They didn’t know about Tai-Chi or Chi Gong. They had just started to be introduced to Yoga and some forms of Japanese martial arts. Ilana will introduce his use of apparatus and music, then we will look at some of the movements.
Ilana requests the participants to have or make a bean bag and to bring it with you. It should be about 15×18 cm in size, and should be filled with about 1lb of (uncooked) rice (the cheapest in the market is sufficient). Very easy to make and so useful. You may even fall in love with them and use them in your teaching.

To book your place please be in touch with judithkleinman@gmail.com, who will send you details of how to pay, plus the Zoom Link.
