12th International
Alexander Technique Congress®

22 – 28 August 2022
Technische Universität Berlin | Germany

Congress Venue

It's directly in the heart of Berlin, adjacent to the large Tiergarten park as well as the Landwehr Canal and the Spree. It's also not far from the from the famous Kurfürstendamm, the Brandenburger Tor and the Reichstag.

The buildings are mostly modern and functional. Being a university building, it’s not the Queen's palace, but we fell in love with its vibe, the huge auditorium, its abundant amenities, and its innumerable nooks and crannies where friends can sit, chat, eat, and even engage in a spot of semi-supine.

We’re especially excited about a beautiful, spacious and bright open space spanning several floors, called the "Lichthof". We have nicknamed that space "the Angel Hall", and this will be where we will have our work-exchange stations and some great events.

It's a great place for students (that's us, right?!) to do all the things they want and need to do.

How-To Sessions

“How To” sessions are new to the Berlin Congress and are daily two hour sessions with teachers who have a deep knowledge on a specific topic so that we can learn how to do things!
How would you like to watch a master teacher giving a first lesson, and then discuss and work with the ideas? Or simply explore two hours of new ideas with an amazing teacher? Or…

We are extremely delighted to welcome our first How-To presenters: Rosa Luisa Rossi, Penelope Easten, Jeremy Chance, Peter Grunwald and Chyna Whyne. They will be giving a weeklong series of our new How-To presentations.

Keynote Presentations

We are proud to announce these Keynote presentations for the Congress in Berlin. We look forward to learning from Dr. Philip Bull, Prof. David Anderson and Rachael Sullivan – who will inspire, educate and stimulate us all! The right words can give us strength and arouse our curiosity, create new ideas and projects, increase our knowledge and deepen our understanding of the Work. And a good question in response can open a world of new thoughts and imagination. We will Nurture Our Work with those presentations, in the beautiful setting of the TU's auditorium.

Portrait of David AndersonProfessor David Anderson– Exploring the science behind the Alexander Technique

Keynote presentation with Q&A

David Anderson is the director of the Marian Wright Edelman Institute for the Study of Children, Youth, and Families at San Francisco State University. Professor Anderson's expertise is in skill acquisition and the relationship between motor activity and psychological functioning.

He will introduce several phenomena that are currently being studied in movement science and sport psychology and which might have a bearing on our understanding of mechanisms underpinning the Alexander Technique.

These include such things as the Einstellung Effect, the Kohnstamm Phenomenon, Ironic effects, the Quiet Eye and the Grenier Technique. We'll have fun exploring how some of these phenomena might inform our understanding of the AT and might serve as profitable directions for further research and understanding. Professor Anderson will also briefly introduce us to a couple of the specific studies he has done on the AT.

Portrait of Dr. Philip BullDr. Philip Bull – Hypermobility and the Alexander Technique

50-minute Keynote presentation with Q&A

Hypermobility is a term that neither FM nor the 1st generation teachers would have known. It’s only in this century that Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (EDS/HSD) have become better understood and recognized in the medical field as genetic conditions for which there is no cure. Many people living with these conditions spend their entire lives managing their symptoms and are increasingly seeking AT for relief. We can potentially make a big difference in their experience by providing strategies for better postural support, calming the nervous system, and improving proprioception and balance, all contributing to their quality of life.

Portrait of Rachael SullivanRachael Sullivan– Marketing the Alexander Technique

Keynote presentation with Q&A

What is the Alexander Technique? Why isn't there more awareness of the Alexander Technique in the general public? How do we get it out there? How do we, as a community, can get more visibility? How do I grow my practice?

Having been instrumental in the recent STAT rebrand, Rachael understands the essence and key challenges of marketing the Alexander Technique. In this talk Rachael will briefly go over the STAT brand work whilst also sharing useful tips that you can implement to grow your business and better market your services in simple, yet effective ways.

And for the first time, now that there's the technology available, we're also looking into making those talks even more accessible for all international attendees. We're investigating subtitles on the screen behind the presenters and possibly even some sort of automatic or in-person live translation. Providing we can afford it, of course. We'll keep you posted!
