Come and share the benefits of our unique hands-on work.

AT Summer School

Summer School for Alexander Technique Teachers and committed practitioners and students.


I am passionate in helping grow and support a community of confident AT Teachers, who know and love this transformative work and wish to share it widely.   We are experts in observing movement and posture patterns and changing habits. Let’s celebrate our expertise and the transformative impact of our work.  As ever, we start with ourselves.

Lucy Ascham graduated from CAT Fellside in 2003 and loves working with colleagues and student teachers who are fluent in Alexander’s discoveries and wish to share work and dive deeper with like-minded people.  Lucy is offering a weekend Summer School at the newly refurbished: 

Fellside Centre, Kendal, UK   9-11 August.

Friday night 4.00-7.00pm,   Saturday and Sunday 10.00-1.00pm

This is a 3 day weekend to help you dip into the well of our hands-on work and find nourishment for you and your practice and students.  We have time to work and socialize with like-minded people.  

When we work it will be focused on developing confidence in what we already know – you are enough, you know enough.  And as always there is room for improvement!  I’ll guide you in hands-on work in pairs and small groups and with the whole group.  We’ll look at ways of working hands free to work with our pupils thinking and what they can do for themselves.  I pride myself on holding a safe and inclusive space for our ease of showing up as we are and learning together.

There is time to rest and restore and integrate, to reflect on your own teaching practices and style, and learn with ease from each other in carefully selected games and explorations.

Preference will be given to those who can attend the whole weekend.  We will be a maximum of 12 people.  There is a sliding scale which I trust will suit all budgets.  I’ve deliberately built in time off on Saturday afternoon so we can rest, walk/run and restore ourselves as we choose.  We learn through imitation and I do my utmost to lead by example.

What others say about working with Lucy in these Teachers courses:

The technical content of Lucy’s Alexander Technique teachers’ workshops is always pertinent and solid, with her wonderful insight, breadth of experience, and creative spin breathing freshness into each topic. 

What really stands out for me, however, is how I always feel seen, and heard, by Lucy. I feel her awareness, interest and compassion always with us – as individuals and as a group. Lucy fosters an atmosphere of gentleness and acceptance which makes her groups a special place in which to share work and learning.

I have now attended three of Lucy’s Who’s Got Your Back weekends for Alexander Technique teachers. I have found them to be helpful on a couple of levels. First, for me personally, it has been wonderfully nurturing and nourishing to receive and give work in such a supportive, caring and nonjudgmental environment. Second, each time I have learned new activities and ways of thinking and approaching our work, which I can bring into my own practice. Lucy creates the perfect space to explore and learn together, as well as the opportunity to get to know one another socially. I cannot recommend these weekends highly enough, and am looking forward eagerly to the next time I have the opportunity to attend.
