Update 8 April 2021
The government has now confirmed that Alexander Technique teachers will be able to return to work from 12th April.
Teachers that have told me they are available for 'hands-on' lessons during the pandemic, incorporating government guidelines "Working safely during coronavirus" and CNHC advice on "returning to work safely".
Peter Bloch (Wilmslow) I am now available for private lessons and have returned to my usual schedule. I always meet, and in many details exceed, government guidelines for 'close contact' work. Safety is, as always, my first priority. Further details of safety measures.
Jenny Fox Eades (Macclesfield) has resumed 'hands-on' teaching, taking into account government guidelines and advice on safe working. She is also teaching 30 minute Zoom lessons for those with prior experience of the Technique.
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 in Fallowfield, Manchester from January. More.
Andrea Hughes (Altringham) is now available for 'hands-on' lessons, following government guidelines for safe working. Also, Andrea is offering lessons for trainee teachers at a special very low rate.
Charlotte Woods (Broadbottom, nr. Hyde, SK14) is now available for 'hands-on' lessons following government regulations. Please contact her for more information.
Sue Fleming (Chorlton, South Manchester) is available for 'hands-on' private lessons, taking all government-advised Covid-19 precautions.
Rhiannon Jones (Chester) is available for 'hands on' lessons, taking all government-advised Covid-19 precautions.
Kim Cant (Warrington) is available for 'hands on' lessons, taking all government-advised Covid-19 precautions.
Gill Thorndyke (Congleton) is available for lessons for trainee teachers and qualified teachers only.
Teachers available for 'hands-on' lessons soon:
Jane Osgood (Peak District/Wilmslow) may start giving hands-on lessons in the autumn for trainee teachers and teachers at Peter's house in Wilmslow, but this is not confirmed yet.
Liz Hulse (Wilmslow) will be available for a limited number of private lessons and possibly for small groups for trainee teachers and teachers only at Peter's house in Wilmslow.
Janet Pinder-Emery (Ambleside, Lake District) will be available for hands-on private lessons, and also for private lessons and groups for trainee teachers, from some time later in the autumn. Contact her directly for more information.
Teachers available for virtual (on-line) lessons:
Alison Marsden (Kendal, Penrith, Kirkby Lonsdale) is available for private lessons via video link, but will not be available for 'hands-on' lessons for now.
Kim Cant (Warrington) is offering online lessons.
Although it is possible, while acting within government regulations, to re-open face-to-face 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.
Zoom classes are continuing through the pandemic and are open to qualified teachers, trainee teachers and very experienced students. Contact me for more information.
The Manchester Alexander Technique Training School (MATTS) is continuing through the pandemic through a combination of online work and individual lessons. You can find detailed information here.
