In this course you will discover how I have been incorporating many of the Dart Procedures into my teaching for the last 45 years. I have found that these Procedures have been of great value to many pupils coming for lessons in the Technique including, for example, top professional singers, people with severe neck and back problems and even disabled people.

You will learn new ways of working that will be inspirational for your Alexander Technique teaching practice. The course is open for all teachers and senior students in training.


The evolution of movement processes developed from the exploratory work of Professor Raymond Dart in the 1940’s based upon his experiences with the Alexander Technique. I have been working with these procedures since 1970. What you will learn in this course is based upon my book The Evolution of Movement which I published in 2015.

A number of processes are very relevant in the Alexander Technique teaching situation. In this course you can gain new insights as to how to balance your right and left bodies, how to manage your breathing, and how to help yourself and others with back problems and coordination issues. By employing conscious inhibition and conscious direction in these procedures you enhance and expand your skill as an Alexander Technique teacher.
