The Alexander Technique with Peter Bloch in Wilmslow, Cheshire

Alexander Technique teachers available for 'hands-on' lessons in Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire (incorporating government policy on working safely during Coronavirus)

AT teachers are now permitted to give individual lessons subject to government guidelines.

 

Updated news will be posted on this page. Last update 12 August.

 

 

Peter (Wilmslow) I will be available for private lessons from Friday 31st July - Wednesday 19th August inclusive, except for Sundays.

I will be wearing protective gear (including both mask and face shield) and giving lessons in my garden where possible (outdoors reduces risk of airborne infection by about 95%), which also has a sheltered area, following careful procedures for cleaning, and taking a number of other precautions as recommended in government guidelines.

It is important that you cancel your lesson if you have any symptoms that suggest you might have been infected with Covid-19.

I will most likely resume work for a few days each week from around 11th September, but will close my private practice again temporarily if there is a significant upsurge in the infection rate in the autumn or winter.

 

Malcolm Williamson (South Manchester) might possibly be available for private lessons later in August but may not start until later in September. I will post his dates as soon as I have more information.

 

Jane Osgood (Peak District) will not be available over the summer but may start giving lessons in the autumn. Jane is more conveniently located for our many students from the Sheffield area.

 

Alison Marsden is now available for private lessons in the Lake District (Kendal, Shap and Kirkby Lonsdale) and on-line via video link.

 

Jenny Fox Eades (Macclesfield) is teaching 30 minute Zoom lessons for those with prior experience of the Technique. She is resuming face to face teaching, taking into account government guidelines and advice on safe working, from August 17.

Groups: Jenny's online AT/body awareness group resumes in September. Contact her for further details if you wish to join. She will, hopefully, be teaching a face to face group at Union Chapel from January. More.

 

Andrea Hughes (Altringham) is teaching an introductory course at the Wilmslow Guild from 7th September. More.

 

Kim Cant (Warrington) is offering online lessons.

 

Charlotte Woods (Broadbottom, nr. Hyde, SK14) plans to offer private lessons from later in August. Please contact her for more information.

 

 

I am still awaiting information from other teachers...

 

 

Peter's Group Classes and the Manchester AT Training Course for Teachers

Although it is possible, while acting within government regulations, to re-open classes at this time, the difficulty in applying the regulations, together with the greater risks involved, have led to a decision to postpone these for now. The plan at the moment is to resume Zoom classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9th September, and these are open to qualified teachers, trainee teachers and very experienced students.

I propose to re-open the classes when a sufficiently effective combination of therapeutics is available, perhaps before the end of this year.
