As your teacher, I rely on my hands to help me carefully monitor how you are using the inseparable mind-body unit we call your Self. I can't find out what I need to know by depending on a purely visual assessment.
Everyone where I work - teachers and students - must show proof of vaccination, wear a mask, and agree not to show up on site if they have symptoms of any kind. With this precaution in place, I feel confident that my hands-on lessons are safe for anyone who is not immuno-compromised. That means they are safe for most people.
The two-way communication of touch is a powerful exchange that cannot be replicated if student and teacher can't be together in the same space and time.
More and more Alexander teachers teach remotely. They can reach more students and will make more money through remote teaching.
But teaching remotely would not satisfy my wish to give my students the best possible experience. Better, deeper AT learning for the people I serve matters more to me than the number of students I can accommodate.
I strongly believe that teaching students in person, hands on, is by far the best choice for AT learning. That's why it's the only approach offered by betterATbeing.
