Masterclass Overview

In this two-hour masterclass, Bruce will teach what he has gleaned about Alexander’s Work over a half century of study. Themes to be explored: learnings from 5 first generation AT teachers, AT principles, pedagogy, and procedures, personal use issues, teaching through touch, and interfacing with complimentary somatic disciplines.

My Mentors

Learn about my mentors, what they were like or how they taught.

Alexander’s Principles

Do you have questions about basic AT principles like inhibition, direction, non-doing, the means whereby, sensory appreciation, end-gaining, the critical moment, reaction to stimuli…?

Personal Use Issues

Maybe you have personal use issues.

Classical & Contemporary Procedures

You may have questions about classical and contemporary Alexander procedures, or individual and group teaching, or working in activity, or pedagogy, or zoom teaching.

Teaching Through Touch

I love talking about how I use my hands.

Complementary Somatic Disciplines

Having studied an array of other somatically oriented disciplines you may have questions about how studies like – gymnastics, modern dance, ballet, contact improvisation, ideokinesis, tai chi, aikido, tango, Japanese tea ceremony, and kyudo have influenced me as a person and teacher.

Testimonials

“Gone is the straight-lined striving, the stopping and oughting. Instead, curiosity, inquisitiveness, and permission to experiment, to play, to open boxes and to climb out of them into a world of possibility – a world both soft and strong. And all this through a quiet power, an exquisite touch, a clarity of speech, and a wealth of wisdom. For me, Bruce’s work is more than exciting; it is important, both to the world and to anyone involved in any way with Alexander’s Technique.”

A. Turner – Alexander Technique Teacher, Cornwall, England

 

“In Bruce’s class you feel as if you are sitting by a deep, soft lake. His pace and patience, his quiet confidence, allows people to unfold and open layer by layer. The superfluous falls away, leaving only life’s inner vitality effortlessly expressing itself through you. His touch is like a butterfly settling down on the very turning point of your soul. And then you know, ‘That is who I am, that is who I could be.’”

M. Tueshaus – Alexander Technique Teacher, Bochum, Germany

 

“When studying with Bruce, incorrect assumptions drop away. New knowledge prevails. Prior actions become inappropriate. Old restraints are discarded. Perspective changes. New freedoms are found. Life shifts.”

J. Schaffer – Alexander Technique Teacher, Baltimore, Maryland
