The Alliance Team of Directors is actively committed to supporting the future of Alexander Technique Training Programs, Faculty, and Directors. Robyn has designed a mentoring intensive specifically for Directors and Faculty of Training Programs, called “Mentoring Trainers”.

Collectively we have trained hundreds of students to become successful Alexander Technique Teachers. We didn’t have anyone teaching us how to do it - we learned by using our judgement and instincts, and by trial and error. We have learned a great deal from our successes and our mistakes, and we would like to pass that information on to you, as the next generation of Trainers.

The Mentoring Trainers Immersion runs concurrent with the Summer Retreat, with some additional time both before and after the main Event. We discuss pedagogy, share our experiences, and create the format for practicing training skills during the Retreat week. We will meet daily throughout the Retreat to evaluate and process the day’s material. We will stay for an additional day after the Retreat to review and synthesize the week’s material.

This is a unique new in-depth mentoring designed to train, mentor, and support the future Trainers of the Alliance. It is also open to Trainers who want to learn about the Alliance style of training. All faculty of the Contemporary Alexander School are required to attend in order to take a teaching slot during the year. Even if you have been on a School Faculty before, this training will offer you pedagogy, direct mentoring, and the opportunity to clearly shift from “teaching” to “training” students. It will give you a chance to evaluate your current skills, ask questions, and learn from our years of experience.
