By Witold Fitz-Simon In 2012, when ACAT launched its new website, I was in my 6th term in the teacher training program. I thought the one element the new site was lacking was a blog to act as an online meeting place for the organization, a place where the many voices of its diverse and fascinating member could be heard. I’m excited to announce the launch of the new blog! I’ve been writing blogs for many years in my other life as a yoga teacher at yogaartandscience.com and mindbodyandbeing.com. Now that I’ve graduated, I’m thrilled to have the privilege of applying my skills as editor and blogger for ACAT.
Along with all the content you would expect from a blog for an organization such as ACAT—including announcements and reviews of upcoming events—we have other great content coming up, including:
- Items of interest to students and teachers of the Alexander Technique drawn from the media and the culture at large
- How-tos to engage students and non-Alexander Technique people, giving them a sense of the scope of the work and how they can apply it directly to their own lives
- Our current librarian and 8th-term teacher trainee, Jessica Santascoy, will be giving us a peak into the amazing resources ACAT has to offer its members
- Director of the teacher-training program, Brooke Lieb, will be offering us her insights into principles of the Technique and their application
I hope you enjoy the offerings we have in store over the coming weeks. I invite you to participate with us in this by commenting often, or by sending questions about the blog and the Alexander Technique to me, at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you would like to contribute to the blog, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
