Two years in and one year to go. It takes a long time to train as an Alexander Technique Teacher, when I’ve finished my three years training I will probably recon I’ve just started my training.
When I started training, I thought three years was far to long, little did I know. Alexander Technique teacher training initially isn’t about teaching others, it’s learning the skills for myself, thats really learning, no skimping allowed, to just playing at it, giving it lip service. It is hard as you have to immerse yourself in the technique.
The learning the technique is an uphill struggle, some things are hard, others just plain difficult. Once these struggles are overcome more appear on the horizon.
Over the past two years I’ve tried to work out what the Alexander Technique is, I’ve had various definitions, todays is about being truthful with loving intent to myself first and these emotions will spill over to others.
If I don’t look after myself how can I look after others.
There is a larger overview on these thoughts in that I must give myself time to stop, reflect and choose what to do next in following my goals. I’m happy to let my goals evolve as time passes as who really wants to achieve their goals, there would be nothing to do when they are done.
