Who’s Directing your Directions – Sage or Saboteur?
Free Talks via Zoom

‘It’s not what you do its the way that you do it’…as Alexander teachers we are all familiar with this concept in relation to physical ‘Use’…however have you ever considered the state of your mental ‘Use’? When  you Inhibit or Direct you use your habitual neurology – your habitual good or bad mental use. How well is your mental use serving you?

  • Do you sometimes feel full of ‘NOs’ from too much inhibiting?
  • Does directing sometimes lead to subtle doing”
  • Does freeing your neck tie you in knots?
  • Are you too busy trying to apply AT principles?
  • Does applying AT principles turn you into an ‘Alexandroid’?
    If so…..
  • Would you like to enhance your Mental Use?
  • Would you like to discover a freedom of mind from which a direction can easily, organically and optimally be experienced?
  • Would you like to cultivate  greater positive neurology…to build the part of your brain that can easily apply AT principles with ease and calm with optimal results?

Come and find out how:

   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.

‘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.

The group will every 1-2 weeks on varying days.
Class duration: 75 minutes: 5.-6.15pm GMT (UK time), 6pm European, 9am Pacific, 10am Mountain, 12 Eastern….

*Thursday 5th November: ‘Prone as a means to boost Primary Control.’
Exploring prone as way of freeing one’s neck, and enhancing primary control. We will explore the nitty gritty of prone and tap into our evolutionary-based, inherent ability to coordinate ourselves using the senses.

*Wednesday 11th November: ‘Allowing One’s Self to Emerge’:
This class will focus on using presence and being present, as a means to allow oneself to release and expand in whatever ways one’s ‘cellular self’ is ready and willing to- without the need to impose directions!

Monday 30th November: ‘From Prone to Tip Toes!’:
This class will focus on experiencing gravity as a positive force to encourage release and expansion. We will work from the floor, gradually evolving progressively upwards through a range of evolutionary stages until standing on tippy toes.

More dates to follow!

4-10pm GMT / 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

With Delia Rosenboom ATI

Next Workshop TBC
 4pm-10pm GMT / UK time
USA times: 11am-5pm Eastern time,
10am-4pm Central time, 8am-2pm Pacific time, 

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.

Cost of workshop: Pay-what-you-can basis: Usual price: £95

Working with States of Trauma

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

Next dates TBC – coming soon! Please enquire.
Via zoom

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.

‘Exploring breath’

The Alexander Technique & Breathing:

10.30am-4pm (GMT), via zoom

A practical and experiential day workshop focussing on the breath & breathing, underpinned by both Alexander Technique work, and by the story of embryological development of the diaphragm / lungs and how their patterns of growth influence their functioning in us as grown-ups, for better or for worse…. and how we can make use of this understanding to enhance and improve our breathing/ vocalising abilities. A day of releasing, stretching, expanding, letting go of interferences…singing…sounding… looking for greater freedom and ease around breathing and vocalising.

Cost: Payment is on a ‘pay-what-you-can basis’ (usual cost £95) via: paypal.me/SingingTogetherHome or by BACS transfer to: D. Rosenboom: Acc: 23535002, sort code: 20-46-73

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

Next dates for 2021 – TBC please enquire.
Via Zoom.

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!)

The Potency of Presence:

The 4 stages of the release  
& the importance of ’embodied presence’

For Alexander teachers and trainees
With Delia Rosenboom

Friday 26th February 2021
4pm-9pm (GMT), via zoom

A ‘hands-on’ workshop exploring the four stages and levels of release, moving gradually from an initial  ‘superficial and exterior letting go’ to a more refined, deep and ‘cellular’ release. We will look at the vital role that conscious presence has to play in this process of release, and in particular how giving a direction can only reach its full potency and effectiveness when a pupil first becomes present within themselves. We will explore the concept that ‘arriving’, ‘ inhabiting’, or becoming present in oneself is a vital prerequisite to an optimal release. Practical work in semi-supine and the upright; talk throughs, discussion and more…

 Cost: £95,  or by donation, on a pay-what-you-can basis. To book a place you can pay for the workshop via: paypal.me/SingingTogetherHome or by BACS transfer  – please ask for details.

To secure a place please make a payment and then contact Delia. Extra details will be sent closer to the workshop day.
