Immerse yourself for a whole week of Alexander Technique in the stunningly beautiful and peaceful surrounds of the north west Scottish Highlands. You will be staying in a beautiful house right next to the sea from which you can see otters, seals, sea eagles and a great variety of other sea birds.

The Alexander Technique will be learnt through a variety of group activities and one-to-one lessons and there will be lots of opportunity to integrate the learning whilst enjoying the local environment...walks, boat trips, beaches etc. There will be plenty of time to share experiences and discuss the AT process. There will be approximately 4 hours per day of AT activities ( with one day off) and each participant will have two half-hour one-to-one lessons during the week.

The Alexander Technique is very much about changing patterns and habits and thus a week long emmersion is ideal for integration of new patterns.
