It was an absolutely inspiring affaire to be a part of these 6 intense days. To hear what´s on in the big world, populated with other good colleagues.

Every third year some fantastic people arrange an international Alexander Technique congress.
This summer it took place at Loyola University Campus North of Chicago.
More than 600 participants from 29 countries had signed up, 2 from Denmark.

It was an absolutely inspiring affaire to be a part of these 6 intense days
To hear what´s going on in the big world, populated with other good colleguages.

This of course should be seen in the light of Denmark being a small country,
and the fact that we have an equivalently limited number of qualified teachers.
We do have an active teacher´s organization, DFLAT,
but we are not +1000 members like the ones in the UK or in The States.

Therefore, for me as a Dane, it was really a boost to meet so many colleagues,
who all work as highly skilled people with years of experience, which they shared.

I met researchers, university professors,
music-, dance- and acting students,
teachers who worked in various companies,
in hospitals or “just” private pupils,
- all of whom use the principles of the Alexander Technique
as a base in everyday life.

-Who have all realized, that the technique´s principles can prevent and heal SO many different kinds of problems.

Yes, even a pretty wide spread phenomena as walking on high heels!

Thus Alexander Technique Congress´ Got Talent 2018 was won by ”Stilletto Guru” from London, singer, model and teacher of the Alexander Technique, Chyna Whyne.
