Applied Alexander Technique in companies and institutions – "the Yes to the Unknown"

Health promotion in companies and institutions – from shop-floor to management – is becoming more and more trendy and necessary. It is demanded and promoted both by employees and employers. The Alexander Technique in particular offers great opportunities to work with employees on site. The concept Priska Gauger-Schelbert has developed is widespread and has found great approval in many companies and institutions.

Since 2001, she has been doing pioneering work in the field of occupational health care and is one of the first AT teachers in Switzerland to introduce the Alexander Technique to the world of business. Well-known Swiss companies such as the Victorinox AG, Siemens AG , Sprüngli AG, Schauspielhaus Zürich, SOB railway Switzerland and many more have been among her customers since then.

Priska believes that the world is ready for the AT knowledge and experience. She is also convinced that there are plenty of work opportunities for all AT teachers.

In this continuous learning the focus lies on

• company contact, evaluation of corporate culture, corporate aims

• organisation of mandate , AT teachers responsibilities

• interplay between own behaviour (use of the self) and external

conditions (ergonomics) at the workplace

• balance-time®

The participants will consider and explore ways of how to teach the Alexander Technique in any working environment. Priska Gauger-Schelbert is more than happy to share her long-standing experience of AT in business with you. www.balance-time.ch

About Priska Gauger-Schelbert

Priska Gauger-Schelbert attended the Performance School in Seattle in 1991. From 1992-1995 she was trained by Jaqueline Webster in Zurich. Since 1995 she has her own Alexander Technique studio in central Switzerland.

Between 2001 and 2003 she developed the pioneering adaptable concept balance-time® based on the Alexander Technique, at the world-famous company Victorinox AG. Since then, this concept has successfully been introduced in numerous institutions and companies throughout Switzerland. Priska Gauger-Schelbert has developed a competent team around balance-time®.

It is central for Priska, mother of four, that everyone is responsible for his or her own health. Alexander Technique is a method which sees this personal responsibility not as a duty, a task or a job, but as an innate potential for lightness, freedom, naturalness and awareness in dealing with oneself, daily work and activitites. To support unfolding this potential in oneself and one’s clients has always been the passionate motivation for her work.
