   Custom-made Small Groups

Would you like to develop your hands-on work within a small group, or to integrate an anatomical understanding into your way of working with the technique? …Or to learn more about the Dart procedures, deepen the listening ability of your hands
or learn more about integrating the emotions into your work??

I am happy to offer help, insight and input to groups of Alexander teachers
or trainees to work together in this way.
Please contact Delia to discuss possibilities.


‘Keeping Your Hand In’

An online weekly drop-in class for Alexander Teachers & Trainees

These classes are an opportunity to creatively work on oneself, to keep one’s hands open and sensitive, and to explore ‘putting hands on oneself’ in preparation to work with pupils again. Of course I understand that you will have your own practice and ways of working on yourself….however if feel you would like to connect with other AT teachers and to be led into some work together which may be familiar… whilst also being a little different, please feel free to take part in this weekly drop-in group with me, via zoom. We will be working in prone, semi-supine, standing, moving, crawling…with dart-type work, monkeys… we will address keeping our hands open and in a beneficially sensitive state… and will work creatively, with visualisation, with anatomical considerations…and more. The work we do will differ week by week.

In the next session on Tuesday 4th, we will work on ways of ‘waking up our hands’…on opening, expanding, sensitising our hands and increasing their ability to ‘listen’…. using our hands optimally in relation to our backs. We will be working in semi-supine, crawling, sitting and standing.

The following week: Friday 14th August, we will explore working with an anatomical/ energetic internal ‘figure of 8’ flow , as a ‘shorthand Alexander way’ of organising ourselves – finding our ‘forwards and up’, our ‘back and up’, an ‘opening up in front’ and a ‘dropping back and down into  our groundedness’…as a precursor to entering into activity  / hands on work.

These classes are offered on a drop-in basis, so you are welcome to join as and when you wish.
The group will run on Tuesdays and will continue weekly with the exception of Tues. 11th Aug, when  the group will run on Friday 14th Aug. instead. The classes will run for 75 mins.

The Spirals of the Arms and Legs

Thursday July 2nd 2020 via Zoom:
11am-5pm UK time

OR

Friday July 10th 2020 via Zoom:
4-10pm UK time
USA: 11am-5pm Eastern time,
10am-4pm Central time,
8am-2pm Pacific time,

A unique opportunity to explore the spirallic nature of our limbs: We will look at the embryological origins limb growth, and how this spirallic, miraculous development underpins how we may work as AT teachers to ‘connect the limbs in’ or to ‘release them out’…..We will address how our limb-muscle’s spirallic arrangement can cause a contraction in towards the foetal….or to an opening & expanding, inherently widening the back & shoulders, giving greater breath and increased grounding. We will also look at the emotional states that ‘encourage’ both of these. We will further explore the connection between arm & leg spirals – from right little finger to left little toe. This will be a practical workshop, intertwining information with experiential talk-throughs / visualisations/ movement/ using one’s hands, working in semi-supine….

The Anatomy of the Torso Spirals & their

Emotional and Energetic Manifestations’

for Alexander teachers and trainees

Friday 17th April 2020: 11am-4.30pm

33 Upper Close, Forest Row, E. Sussex, RH18 5DS

 An opportunity to explore the physical, anatomical considerations of our spirallic torso musculature (acc. Prof. Raymond Dart), alongside how our energetic and emotional holdings manifest within these at key points, affecting how we contract, hold, or unconsciously protect the front of ourselves.  We will work with hands on and off the body to encourage deepening levels of release, both within the exterior spirallic musculature and also simultaneously within the ‘energetic substance’ of ourselves. We will explore how encouraging the front of the torso to open and expand in this way organically enables further degrees of invaluable release in the back.

This workshop can be attended as a one-off experience, or as the first part of a 3 day experience, by also attending the workshop below on 18-19th April.

 Cost of workshop: £90, (£80 for AT trainees).
There is a reduction if also attending workshop on 18-19th April, Cost for both workshops: £255 (AT trainees £225).

Places limited, so please book early, by making a BACS transfer to:

Working with States of Trauma

A two-day workshop for Alexander Teachers & Trainees
With Delia Rosenboom ATI

Saturday 18th – Sunday 19th April 2020:
10.30-4.30pm

Forest Row, East Sussex, Rh18

When pupils present themselves with an underlying state of shock, of being frightened, of grieving or of being traumatised – however present or archaic this may be – it is not necessarily appropriate to work with the same aims, methods, time scale or pacing that may be effective with other pupils. Something else may be called for in order that the background state can gradually dissolve and free itself from its physical encapsulation. This workshop will explore ways of working that enable a sensitive ‘growing out of’ these states, setting them free in their own time…and will address the concept of ‘appropriate use’ as opposed to ‘good use’. For us as teachers this approach requires a surrendering of what we think we know, of what we may think the pupil needs, of what to ‘do’ next, and a instead a simple ‘allowing’ to work from a state of presence and prolonged inhibition.

Bookings: This practical hands-on workshop follows-on from the workshop on 17th (and also works as a one-off workshop).
Cost of workshop:  £180, (£160 for AT trainees)
There is a reduction if also attending workshop on 17th April:
Cost for both workshops: £255 (AT trainees £225).

Places limited, so please book early, by making a BACS transfer to:

Anatomy of Alexander’s ‘Primary Control’
for Alexander Teachers & Trainees
With Delia Rosenboom (ATI)

Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th October 2020: 10-5pm
33 Upper Close, Forest Row, East Sussex, RH18 5DS

A practical & creative workshop exploring the bony and muscular considerations of the head, neck and back

An exciting opportunity to explore what is actually happening when we free our own necks, or guide a pupil’s  head, neck and back into a state of enhanced freedom. We will explore what is happening at the boney, skeletal level and at the muscular/ connective tissue levels, and address how these core structures respond to conscious thought, to movement, to considerations of gravity, weightlessness, opposition…We will address how this dynamic core supports the limbs, internal organs and vocal mechanisms and how ‘getting out of the way’ of this can bring to
life a life-enhancing inner support.

Come and explore what is happening ‘beneath the skin’ in this creative and experiential hands-on workshop. Practical, insightful  anatomy, talk-throughs, visualisations and hands-on work.

(This is also an excellent workshop to attend if you will be applying to join ATI via sponsorship and need to brush up on your anatomy!)

Venue: 33 Upper Close, Forest Row, E. Sussex, RH18 5DS
Cost: £180 (AT trainees £160)
