Health & Well-Being Program
Health & Well-Being Program
We are pleased to offer dedicated students of the Alexander Technique the opportunity to undertake a course of study for personal health and well-being within the ACAT Teacher Certification Program.
Health & Well-Being Program students participate in the training class, receive hands-on instruction from the faculty and explore material from the first year curriculum which focuses on use of the self. Students may also have the opportunity to receive hands-on work from third-year students in the program and will join in group and partner explorations. Health and Well-Being participants are not instructed in hands-on or other teaching skills.
Optional Private Lesson Package: Intensive students are also eligible to have a package of ten, 30-minute private lessons from a member of the ACAT faculty at a reduced rate.

"The Health & Wellbeing Program" gave me an opportunity to practice and study The Alexander Technique at ACAT for up to sixteen hours per week. This intensive style of study was the only program that worked to reduce my chronic pain and it also gave me a solid foundation towards my teaching. I recommend this program to anyone interested in improving their use of self as well as their overall health and wellbeing." – David Oromaner, Musician and Private Drum Teacher
