"Thanks to the Alexander Technique I feel I've
taken my first baby steps into a far more colourful world, one that I
can't help but want to explore... and LCATT has been my nursery! I like
the open-mindedness and diverse approaches of the teachers. I feel very
encouraged to ask questions and find my own way to express the Technique."
the first time I visited the school, I had no doubts that I would like
to do my training there. It has a lovely atmosphere and wide range
of creative and open-mind people, teachers and students, who gave me
the chance to discover some amazing things like a philosophy of education.
It has been a time full of experiences, which has led me to have new and different
ways of thinking.
"I love the
atmosphere in the teaching room at LCATT; it is all at the same time
welcoming and friendly, calming and peaceful, stimulating and lively.This
may partly be because we have a varied daily programme of quiet ‘hands
on’, experimental games and procedures, talks and discussions -
and of course a tea break. When we wish to have time out, we can lie
down amongst the cushions or sit down to read or watch.

"The school has a friendly relaxed atmosphere and, with a high-ceilinged double room and terrace, is especially inviting in summer. But at all times there are long inspiring views - so unusual in the heart of London - which were conducive to releasing and expanding. There is a wide variety of teaching styles among the trainers who encouraged us to find our own way of teaching and not simply mirror them. The emphasis of the anatomy tuition was in helping us map our own bodies and on the development of our powers of observation of others'. I really enjoyed my time at LCATT - there was a lot of space to explore myself and my use - and the terms flew by only too fast."

When I came to London in May 2004 in order to become a teacher
of Alexander Technique, I did visit every school in London. Some I loved,
few I disliked. Why did I choose the one in Highbury? The one that was one
hour away from Wimbledon, where I lived as an au pair and then kept working
as a French teacher ?...
Because when I visited my school I felt something special. I knew I wanted
to study there. I felt at home, I loved the teachers instantly. I loved
the fact that Refia - the head of the training- had such a wide approach
of the Technique, and at the same time very simple and loyal to the principles
of Alexander. I loved the teachers : Judith who trained with Mc Donald,
and Rodger who trained with Carrington. They are wonderful teachers and
human beings, and I learned a tremendous amount from them.
