Welcome!

As events have kept us apart for so long, we look forward to this week to be finally again all together in Berlin.

Congress Invitation Text on top of image of Brandenburger Tor and a lady waving a German Flag: Join us in Berlin! One week full of great workshops, work exchange, presentations, and discussions.

At this Congress we put the focus on the expertise of each individual teacher, on our collective wisdom, and on the diversity and uniqueness of our work. We are striving to offer a rich and varied program that enables you to make active choices and that allows you to make the Congress your own.

We warmly welcome all those interested in the Alexander Technique from a multitude of backgrounds in the hope that we all may meet, share, and move forward into the future together. The Congress encourages the participation of experienced and new Alexander teachers alike, as well as students on training courses. Alexander Technique pupils, and any other interested people, are also welcome to attend.

With your participation, we hope to deepen our understanding of the work, expand our skills, learn from stellar keynote speakers, and raise public awareness about the technique.

In short: We will be…

Nurturing Our Work – NOW!

Congress News

COVID-19 Info

We are trying our best to maintain the Congress as an open platform for learning and exchange, while keeping everybody as safe as possible.

  • Recently, national restrictions have been lifted for the most part, so we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to come together without too many obstacles. Of course, the pandemic conditions can always change, and national regulations might change accordingly.

  • We are offering every attendee an extraordinary cancellation policy for their booking, should the pandemic or Berlin regulations make it difficult or impossible for them to attend. And, we also have a contingency plan ready, if all goes not as we hope.
  • Details can be found on our dedicated COVID-19 info page.

Congress Program

Continuous Learning

Continuous Learning (CL) sessions are given by very experienced Alexander Technique teachers. Pick two classes running over two days each.

How-to
Sessions

How-to run parallel to the Continuous Learning sessions. These are daily two-hour sessions with teachers who have deep knowledge on specific topics.

Keynote Presentations

Plenary Sessions

Special presentations by renowned speakers from outside and inside of our AT community.

Workshops

Workshops are your chance to showcase the work. This year we offer three different  durations: Mini (30 min.), Medium (75 min.), and, to dive deep into a subject, XL workshops (150 min.).

Work-Exchange

We have an incredibly beautiful space for exchanging work with other teachers. It is called the Lichthof  but we nicknamed it the Angel Hall. This spacious bright open space spanning several floors is a perfect setting for learning and sharing.

Check it out on our TU page.

Panel Discussions

The perfect opportunity to explore a variety of topics from different perspectives.

Get inspired, ask questions and join in the discussion!

Meet, share and learn from each other and maybe even create something new.

Activities

Morning & Evening

Activities have doubled up and will now take place in the mornings as well as in the evenings!

Qigong, Meditation, Yoga, Dance and more…

Open Space

A week full of events can be a lot to take in and to process. This is why we make sure everyday there will be time with no official programme. It will be your time and space open to whatever you feel like doing, not-doing or perhaps even non-doing.

We very much hope that you will be able to come and enjoy the Congress. We are committed to delivering the best Congress we can, and we look forward to being together under the same roof and sharing the Work that we all love, in 2022.
