Barstow Institute ONLINE Summer Workshop 

The Legacy of Marj Barstow’s Teaching: Observation, Activities and Groups

June 20-26, 2022  (16 hours total)
Monday – Friday:  4:00-6:00 pm Eastern
Saturday & Sunday: 12:00-3:00 pm Eastern

Online

A new online training for Alexander Technique teachers and trainees interested in group and online teaching.

Marj Barstow was a visionary innovator and the richness of her teaching legacy is more relevant today than ever before.
The worldwide pandemic has severely limited teaching AT in-person in the classical style of hands-on one-on-one. We have the opportunity to thrive in the current reality by making good use of the potential to connect around the world online. Marj’s teaching provides a unique template particularly well-suited for online and group teaching and can help teachers and trainees from all backgrounds and at all levels of experience to enhance and further their skills and adaptivity.

This specialized track as part of the 2022 Barstow Institute Summer Workshop will be held exclusively online and will target key areas of Marj’s pedagogical approaches:

  • Observing use and patterns of interference
  • Directing coordination in activity
  • Teaching in groups

This online workshop will be highly interactive and collaborative with daily assignments and guidelines for constructive feedback so that we can a create a safe environment for exploration and experimentation to further hone and develop our skills.

This track will be limited to 10 participants.

Tuition: $200 – 295

Postgraduate Training with Brooke Lieb

Brroke Lieb, Alexander Technique Teacher, Pipersville, PABrooke Lieb, Director of Teacher Training at The American Center for the Alexander Technique, is available for private or shared Post Graduate lessons in Pipersville PA by appointment. Brooke is typically in Pipersville once a month on a weekend.

Continue to refine your hands-on skills; address specific pedagogical questions you have about your students; address your own use in teaching and in life. Private or shared lessons include hands on from me and the chance to put hands on for feedback. You may take one-on-one lessons or shared lessons.

Brooke’s Approach

I believe in cultivating your innate skills. Sessions build on what you are already doing effectively, and focus on empowering you to explore, experiment and ask your student to take a direct role in his or her own learning. The Alexander Technique is a highly effective tool in the hands of every Alexander Teacher.

Topics

• Understanding differences in learning styles, use patterns, and structural variations
• Giving and soliciting feedback from your student
• Matching your verbal instructions with your hands-on work
• Addressing your student’s interests and needs in the context of the Alexander principles.
• Developing your professional boundaries for long term success
• Staying interested and engaged in teaching

Supervised Teaching

In-Person supervised teaching: Sessions can include hands-on support for you while teaching; pedagogical suggestions to more effectively communicate your ideas; suggestions of how to address learning styles and your student’s use patterns in different ways through chair work, activities or tableware.

Skype sessions: I observe you as you work with your student. We decide ahead of time whether you would like me to share suggestions and observations during the lesson or opt to wait until after your student has left the lesson.

Fees for these services are $100/hour
