Continue to refine your hands-on skills; address specific pedagogical questions you have about your students; address your own use in teaching and in life. Lessons include hands on from me and the chance to put hands on for feedback. You may take one-on-one lessons or shared lessons.
"My postgraduate training with Brooke has been and continues to be an essential component to my success as an Alexander Technique teacher. -Jessica Santascoy, habitspecialist.com
I believe in cultivating your innate skills. Sessions build on what you are already doing effectively, and focus on empowering you to explore, experiment and ask your student to take a direct role in his or her own learning. The Alexander Technique is a highly effective tool in the hands of every Alexander Teacher.
"Brooke’s post-graduate workshops have been very useful to me as a new teacher. These classes have helped me continue to develop my hands-on skills and to become more confident in my ability to teach." -Melissa Brown, Graduate, ACAT '15
