ITM TRAINING COURSES
Together, the two ITM training courses provide the most comprehensive approach currently available for the study of the FM Alexander Technique. Because the primary purpose of the course is personal development and life-enhancement, the ITM Teacher Training Course is suitable for all, not just people who wish to become teachers.
THE ITM TEACHER TRAINING COURSE MODULES
The ITM Teacher Training Course is divided into three sections.
Designed for the general public, in the first three modules trainees study the basic principles to be found in Alexander’s work, the principles and structures that govern human movement and life-changing material from the fields of success education and business management.
All students who complete the first three modules are invited to continue into the teacher preparation section of the course. These next three modules provide an in-depth study of practical anatomy as it relates to movement and the use of hands in teaching, as well as a more detailed study of Alexander’s four books.
The fourth year of the training cycle enables students to take what they have learned to synthesize a personal way to teach Alexander’s work in a creative ITM manner.
We have found that the program designed to train ITM teachers is also the most effective program for people to follow whose interest is only in personal development and we recommend that students complete the full course whether they intend to teach professionally or not.
“I didn’t realise that studying Mr. Alexander’s work was going to be such a journey. The training course is wider in scope than I imagined. Not only is it a chance to rethink my ideas, but also to rethink the process of learning itself. It has offered me a glimpse into the freedoms that I have: not only in how I move, but in how I want to live.”
