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 happening on Zoom.

Workshares for All Teachers

Next free workshare will happen as soon as we are able to meet again.
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

The next workshops will take place when we are able to meet again in person.

Past teacher’s workshops have been with Missy Vineyard, a Head of Training in the USA and author of a ‘How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live’; Lucia Walker, dance teacher and specialist in improvisation, and head of training of the  Alexander school in Johannesburg.
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.
‘INTERESTING TALKS’

LCATT hosts a series of interesting talks linking with other disciplines. They have been really successful so far, so do come and join us for the next one. 

The 14th Interesting Talk will be announced soon.

The talk will be on zoom and Judith Kleinman will be the host. Please be in touch and she will send the invite out nearer the time. As usual we charge for the talk so that we can pay the speaker properly, £ 7 for teachers and £5 for students. Please email judithkleinman@gmail.com to book.


We have had wonderful talks by
Leon Baugh on the ‘Anatomy in Motion’ system.
Colin Farquharson, voice and acting coach, on ‘How the Mind changes the Body’ and working with dyslexia.
Liz Kalinowska and Daska Hatton on the relationship between cranio-sacral therapy and Alexander Technique.
Emma Alter, giving us an introduction to Feldenkrais with information on his life and a taste of his work.
