Residential Alexander Technique Workshop

July 8–13, 2013

Please read this document for more information about the workshop.

Humans are designed for movement and expression.  The Alexander Technique (AT) is a systematic study of the principles that govern human movement. These principles guide us to a kinesthetic experience of wholeness and lightness—thinking becomes clearer, feelings balanced, sensations livelier, and movement more pleasurable. Through this integrated, more conscious condition, we find our actions strengthened and refined.

The Alexander Technique Residential Workshop at Viterbo is an excellent way to study the technique at whatever level you are.  No previous Alexander experience is necessary.  New students can begin to build a foundation in AT principles. People who have studied before will find support to clarify and deepen their work.  Current Alexander teachers and teacher trainees can work with master teachers in a community setting.

There will be large and small group sessions as well as individual Alexander lessons.  Optional classes may be offered in related areas such as movement, voice, performance skills, and Alexander Technique in daily activities.  Contact Diane Foust, or 608-796-3769 for information.

If you attended any previous Viterbo Alexander Technique summer workshop, you are eligible for a $100 returnee discount.

Registration Fee:

$595 tuition
$195 quad occupancy (two people per bedroom in a two-bedroom apartment)
$300 double occupancy (one person per bedroom in a two-bedroom apartment)

Registration deadline extended to June 21st.
