I like to consider the teaching of the Alexander Technique as a form of dialogue between two people in which various aspects are intertwined: what we see, what we hear, what we think, what we say, what we do, what we feel. When we come into physical contact with our student there is an exchange of particular information. What do our hands feel? What do they say about us? We will explore the meaning of these questions in relation to the use of ourselves and our student, to give space and time to what we cannot see and hear, to what we have not yet thought, said, done or felt.
About Paolo Frigoli
Paolo Frigoli trained as an Alexander Technique teacher from 1989 to 1992. In subsequent years he spent long periods of professional development in UK at the Brighton Alexander Training Centre directed by John and Carolyn Nicholls, while he could also take regular lessons from Walter Carrington and Peggy Williams. Since then he has kept working regularly with John Nicholls who has become his mentor. Paolo has taught the Technique for over 27 years individually and in groups, both in his private studio and in public institutions, and has been invited to teach in various Alexander schools. In 2008 he was on the Continuos Learning faculty at the International Congress in Lugano. In 2015 he started his own STAT approved teacher training course in Italy. Paolo qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989, then trained in the Mézierès method with Dr. Laura Bertelé and in the Cranio-Sacral Therapy of Dr. John Upledger, which is still part of his daily practice.
