I gained my Teaching certificate after 3 years of an Alexander Technique teacher training course in 1994. It was one of only two courses being run in Scotland at the time, in beautiful St. Andrews. The training was by Jan Day, a 'second-generation' teacher, who was a model tutor of the work. The training initially comprised of working on oneself for the first year, so that we were able to firmly establish the mental 'directions' necessary in using the Alexander Technique. We also had lots of hands-on work from the 2 tutors to guide us to a better 'use of ourselves', in everyday activities. In the second year we actually got to put our hands on members of the public and by the 3rd year we were beginning to hone our teaching skills. The skills that I learnt during that time have helped me enormously throughout my life since.
