Can I read this website in my language?
Just find the flag symbol on top of each page, click on it, and select the flag that corresponds with your preferred language.
Please forgive the occasional awkward translation – we are using the Google Translate service for this. And as you know, it’s far from perfect, but you should always be able to understand everything. If in doubt, just contact us with any and all questions!
I don't receive any emails from the Congress, why is that?
Please check your Spam folder.
For some people, our emails and newsletters seem to arbitrarily get classified as spam/junk and directly moved to the Spam folder.
To avoid this, please add our email addresses email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book and/or email “whitelists”.
Also, do not hesitate to contact us if you suspect an issue here.
How can I submit a workshop proposal?
Workshop submissions were possible until 30 July 2022 and are now closed.
Thank you to every teacher who contributed. We have 97 workshops to choose from!
How can I book a spot for a workshop?
This means you don’t need to book your spot. You just turn up.
We only have to make sure that maximum room occupancies are being observed. For your favourite workshops, we therefore advise you to be there a few minutes early before the workshop starts.
How can I book and/or change my Continuous Learning/How-to sessions?
Continuous Learning and How-to sessions are the only classes that require pre-booking.
There is no direct way for you to change or delete your choices. If you absolutely need to change your booking, please email us,
Do you offer day passes?
Yes, we do!
Just click “Register NOW” button on top of every page to see all the registration options.
Note: Please remember that Continuous Learning sessions run of two consecutive days on Tuesday/Wednesday and Friday/Saturday. So to be respectful of the teachers’ work, if you like to attend a CL session, you need to include either one of these 2-day combinations in your selection. You can always attend How-to sessions, as they run every day in self-contained sessions.
Can I register if I am neither an AT teacher, nor a trainee, nor a pupil?
The Congress is open to everyone interested in the Alexander Technique. Although some of the events may only be suitable to the AT teachers and trainees, many are open to all curious and open-minded individuals. All event descriptions specify if they are suitable for teachers, trainees or everybody.
Everyone is welcome to register as a Regular Attendee.

What is your COVID policy?
We are working hard to follow the requirements for keeping everyone safe, while at the same time maintaining the most open, welcoming and trouble-free atmosphere possible.
The Technical University requires that the Congress operate under the Berlin Senate’s official COVID-19 Ordinance (Infektionsschutzverordnung).
You can also follow the latest updates on what is required by The Governing Mayor of Berlin – Senate Chancellery, on the Measures against the coronavirus webpage, specifically the section Public and private events.
Check out our COVID-19 Info page for regular updates.
How do l login to my account?
Where do I find the Login and Logout buttons?
You can always find your account login under Your Account on our main drop down menu (the three horizontal lines – the hamburger – in the top right-hand corner of each page). You can also use these direct links: Login | Logout.You will see the Login (if you are not logged in) and Logout (if you are logged in) buttons. The Logout button is also on the menu on the top of Your Account Page.
How do I check-in? How do I get my Congress badge?
To eliminate queuing we will employ a self check-in. Therefore, we kindly ask you to print the Congress Badge yourself and bring it to the Congress. You will find the link to print your badge on the Congress Confirmation email or on Your Account Page.
As we are trying to minimise our ecological footprint, we would also like to ask you if you could find and re-use a badge cover with lanyard. Most of us will have collected several of these and have them lying around from past events. But if not – DON’T WORRY!
We still will have printing facilities, covers and lanyards on-site, and are happy to assist you in any way, at any time upon your arrival at the TU (Technische Universität).
How can I recover lost password to my account?
