Frequently Asked Questions

How many lessons will I need to take?

Students can take as many or as few lessons as they like.  However, a series of 20-30 lessons is usually recommended in order to give students a basic understanding of the technique and its application.  With a strong foundation in the work, students will be able to use the technique effectively on their own.

How long is a lesson?
Private lessons are generally 45 minutes.  However, lessons can be tailored to suite the individual's needs

What should I wear to a lesson or workshop?

Students should wear clothing that is comfortable and appropriate.  Skirts and dresses are not recommended. 


How does someone become a qualified teacher?

Qualified teachers, certified by CanSTAT  (Canadian Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique) in Canada, have completed a three-year full-time training course through a school recognized by the Society.  These schools meet the requirements as set out by the CanSTAT in its by-laws. The Society is affiliated with the international group of STAT Societies. This group has established the mutually recognized standards of all schools within its jurisdiction. Therefore, a certificate issued by a school within the group will automatically be recognized by STAT Societies all over the world.
