Teaching on training school in London in February

Barry has again been engaged as a visiting expert on an Alexander Technique training course in London.

Barry will visit London in February where he will show students some of the finer aspects of teaching the Technique, where students are in training to become Alexander Technique teachers. Barry finds it inspiring working with students in training, and frequently visits them, where he feels fulfilled and appreciated for the work he has been refining for 24 years.

Contact Barry should you be in London and wish to visit the training school on Saturday 9th February 2019, when the school is open to visitors who wish to know more about the Technique and are willing to work with supervised students.

Some comments of students from Barry’s previous visits:

“You really give meaning to the expression giving heart and soul to your work”

“Barry’s visits have been one of the highlights of my training”

“You seem to be able to get across stuff in the space of five minutes that will change my life for ever. It’s not a debt I can ever repay, but I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am.”

Workshop for Alexander Technique teachers, 18th August 2018

Barry was invited to give a workshop as part of SASTAT’s annual Alexander Technique Teachers Conference. The workshop was well recieved and covered the following:

  • Experiencing the five senses
  • The sixth sense – kinaesthesia
  • Maintaining a unified field of attention, through clear perception
  • Experimenting with the presence of mind not to do
  • Discovering that non-doing cultivates acceptance
  • Outcome: maintaining a unified field of attention, with non-doing, fosters compassion and love
  • Conclusion: love is within our conscious control
