“I have been working with Jeando doing online lessons for the past two years. Jeando is a long-time teacher of the technique who has translated Alexander’s four books into French. He has developed a unique pedagogy, based on a deep understanding of the Alexander technique and an original, rigorous, and inquiring mind. Those two years of lessons have helped me to refine my own use, and to deepen my anatomical understanding of coordination and “mechanical advantage.” I always leave the lessons with more length and width, inspiration, and approaches which I can take into my own teaching practice. I am excited to be inviting Jeando and introducing his work to the Alexander technique community in a context that will give us time to immerse ourselves in the work.” David Moore
“What is teaching and learning about? Teaching is about instilling autonomy, self-control and self-regulation into the pupil. Learning is all about the pupil acquiring a) techniques and b) internal strategies about the use of techniques that make an individual able to achieve intelligent results without the help of a teacher.
It is also about enabling a person to adapt to new problems, to new situations with the help of social tools such as language, symbols and knowledge of cause and effect. It is not about repeating an experience mechanically so as to beat a “good reaction” into a pupil’s head.” Jeando Masoero
The course starts at noon on the Thursday and ends at noon on Monday. We have a very full program starting with yoga at 7am and continuing to the late afternoon, and for some days into the evening as well. We normally take a three hour break for lunch in the middle of the day, which gives us time to rest, explore the surrounding bush, or to go into Healesville for a coffee.
The beautiful Maitripa Centre, near Healesville, is about 80 minutes from Melbourne.
