Alexander Certification
April 19, 2014 8:15 PM   Subscribe

Posting a question for the SO. If a person in the United States wanted to get certified for teaching Alexander Technique, which certifying body should they take classes with - Alexander Technique International or the American Society of Alexander Technique? What are the differences? Which would be more "legit" or accepted for a theatre professor in the US?

AmSAT is the more "legit" of the two in that its training course standards are closer to the original (3 years, 1600 hours, no weekend courses). It would be much easier for an AmSAT teacher to join ATI than vice versa. That said, there are many amazing teachers in ATI, and 1600 hours in an AmSAT training doesn't guarantee a good teacher. I don't know if it would make a difference for a theater professor.

PM me if your SO would like to talk more.

There is an Alexander teacher sitting next to me - he says ATI is more theatre friendly and open minded.
