Barstow Alexander Institute
great setting for great work

Typical Summer Alexander Technique Workshop

The daily schedule provides each participant with a variety of learning and experiencing opportunities. Once you arrive, you will be assigned to a mentor teacher, and will have group sessions with different faculty members. Your private lesson will also be scheduled once the Institute begins. A schedule, with location, for each class and activity will also be posted.

Come and join us on this fascinating journey.

The core of the Alexander Technique teaching occurs during the morning hours and the afternoon Small Group classes.
