Free Resources For AT Teachers

Here you will find resources and links to help you to teach the Alexander Technique in education at primary school, secondary school and tertiary levels. Many of the resources are also suitable to use with private pupils. Various resources will be added here from time to time. You might want to join our mailing list so that we can keep you up to date with any changes.

How You Can Help

 At The Developing Self we want to co-create a community of teachers who feel that getting the work into education is really important. To this end we try to offer as many resources free of charge as we possibly can.

However we do have some overheads. 

If you feel moved to send us a donation we would be very happy and extremely grateful to receive it! 

Even just £1 would be marvellous.

Thank you!

Educare Movement Circle

All the movements from Educare Movement Circle demonstrated by Sue Merry. Refer to the book "Alexander in Primary Education" by Sue Merry to understand what is happening here.

Useful Movements With Direction

A series of videos from Judith Kleinman demonstrating some of the movements that she teaches on the Developing Self Education Training Course. See the course materials for more information.

How to Draw a Simple Labyrinth

Sue Merry has created a system for teaching the Alexander Technique in Primary Education. She has discovered that using labyrinths on their own, and also combined with "Lazy 8" shapes (Lazy Labyrinths), helps children to integrate the principles of Alexander work into writing and drawing skills. 

The Ready List

Some updates for the Ready List. 

This video is for graduates of our Alexander in Education Training Course. 

Take the Ready List to a whole new level by adding in these extra elements.

New Resources for Primary School Children

Educare Small School is operating online at the moment, all the children are at home. Below are a few resources Sue Merry is developing for the school. They can be used by anyone.

Stories for Children Aged 3 and Up

Mr.Jackson stories are a feature of Educare Small School. Sue uses them to help reinforce AT principles, in the form of The Ready List.

The stories have a particular structure that is very familiar to Educare Children.

Sue plans to make one video a week during this period of time when the school building is closed.

This video is very unpolished but fun!

Movement Circle Live-Stream

Every morning at Educare begins with Movement Circle.

While the school is working from home Sue intends to live-stream Movement Circle every Wednesday morning at 9.00 am.

You are welcome to join us either live or to replay the recording.

The next live-stream will happen in June, after the half-term break.
