Last update 21 May 2021
Alexander Technique teachers have been permitted to return to work since 12th April following government safety guidelines for working during the pandemic.
This is a list of 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. In addition I have received both a vaccination and a booster dose. Further details of safety measures.
Jenny Fox Eades (Macclesfield) has resumed 'hands-on' teaching (May 2021), 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 runs an online AT/body awareness group. Contact her for further details if you wish to join. She will also be teaching a face to face group at Union Chapel in Fallowfield, Manchester from 8th June 2021. More.
Andrea Hughes (Altringham) has resumed 'hands-on' lessons since 12th April, following government guidelines for safe working.
From late May 2021, Andrea will be available for individual lessons in the Northern Quarter of Central Manchester on Mondays (download flyer here) and from 8th June will be resuming her group classes in Fallowfield, Manchester.

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 teacher very soon (May 2021). 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.
