  • Caroline Blackshaw

    Caroline Blackshaw
    Victoria, Australia

    Australia Caroline Blackshaw, Smart Yoga teacher and teacher trainer from Yoga Hut in Melbourne, Australia has been teaching yoga for close to 20 years. Over time, Caroline found that there were aspects of her yoga practice, which seemed to be causing injury and she began to seek more information about how to work with the postures in the most beneficial way for each practitioner.
    The key to discovering more about yoga, for her, lay in learning the Alexander Technique. Caroline studied with David Moore at the School for F M Alexander Studies, where she found that, by applying the principles of the technique to her yoga practice, she was able to start to enjoy postures she had previously found difficult, find a lightness and ease in her body that had not been available in the past, and that many of her injuries and aches and pains decreased or even went away.
    Caroline teaches weekly yoga classes at Yoga Hut in Melbourne, Australia and online, and trains Smart Yoga teacher trainees with David Moore at the School for FM Alexander Studies in Melbourne, Australia and online.

  • Dr. Joseph Weissenberg
    Bayern, Germany

    Germany Joseph Weissenberg
    Hi, I am Joseph Weissenberg and I have a PhD in Music. My Dissertation was a baseline study about “Alexander Technique and Stage Presence”. I published the book Alexander Technique and Stage Presence (german language) in 2015.
    After that, I started to develop different trainings to help people on stage. It turned out to be more than simple trainings for stage performances. The beginning was the movement balance training and then quickly came the movement listening training.
    What did I do? To be able to train the body and awareness online you need reference points. I developed two trainings which apply 12 MAP’s (Master Awareness Points) and two active bodylines.
    I also started to work with constellations and use Soul Room Meditations to become acquainted with the soul, the inner self. I use it now to build the inner chi.
    I have three different training approaches to help artist with their problems – body – soul – stage presence.
    And this is the latest development, to train the inner chi using movement listening and soul room meditations in a workshop, combining body and soul with the AT as knowledge base.

    Joseph Weissenberg
    Hallo, ich bin Joseph Weissenberg und ich habe einen Doktortitel in Musikpädagogik. Meine Dissertation war eine Grundlagenstudie zum Thema \\\\\\\”Alexandertechnik und BĂĽhnenpräsenz\\\\\\\”. Im Jahr 2015 habe ich das Buch \\\\\\\”Alexandertechnik und BĂĽhnenpräsenz\\\\\\\” veröffentlicht.
    Danach habe ich begonnen, verschiedene Trainings zu entwickeln, um Menschen auf der BĂĽhne zu helfen. Es wurden mehr als ein einfaches Trainings fĂĽr BĂĽhnenauftritte. Am Anfang entwickelte ich das Bewegungsausgleichstraining und dann kam schnell das Training des Bewegungshorchens.
    Was habe ich gemacht? Um den Körper und das Bewusstsein online trainieren zu können, braucht man Bezugspunkte. Ich habe zwei Trainings entwickelt, die 12 MAP\\\\\\\’s (Master Awareness Points) und zwei aktive Körperlinien verwenden.
    Ich habe auch begonnen, mit Aufstellungen zu arbeiten und Seelenraum-Meditationen zu verwenden, um die Seele, das innere Selbst, kennenzulernen. Ich benutze sie jetzt, um das innere Chi aufzubauen.
    Ich habe drei verschiedene Trainingsansätze, um KĂĽnstlern bei ihren Problemen zu helfen – Körper – Seele – BĂĽhnenpräsenz.
    Und dies ist die neueste Entwicklung, das innere Chi mit Hilfe von Bewegungshören und Seelenraummeditationen in einem Workshop zu trainieren, der Körper und Seele mit der AT als Wissensbasis verbindet.

  • Otto Vogt

    Otto Vogt
    Zurich, Switzerland

    Switzerland I came to the Alexander Technique through a chronic sport injury in 1982. I became so fascinated by the AT-work that I took a teacher training with the wonderful teacher Jacqueline Webster. I received the Alexander diploma in 1986 and have been teaching the Alexander Technique without interruption ever since. I have been very fortunate to work with a number of first generation teachers: Margaret Goldie, Patrick McDonald, Walter Carrington, Marjorie Barlow. My great interest in physical health then led me to study osteopathy. I have been working as an osteopath since 1998 and I can proudly say that my most important tool in my practice is the Alexander Technique. Over the years my yearning grew for what is usually called personal growth: understanding one’s self, moving past old emotional pain, and accessing one’s greater potential. I began learning about mindfulness and meditating. I found that this supported me incredibly as a person and I discovered many new insights about the mind-body connection and the Alexander Technique. I then went on to train as a mindfulness teacher (MBSR, MSC, IMP). Since 2009 I have been offering mindfulness training and meditation courses. At the congress in Lugano I led mindfulness workshops and I was happy to see how much this was appreciated by the many participants.
