Workshops

We have over 90 amazing workshops! No need to register.

This year we are excited to be offering 4-days of workshops presented by Alexander Technique teachers from around the world. You do not need to sign-up for workshops, but most will be limited to 20-25 participants.

Workshop application is closed.  Clarification: You must be a graduate of an AT teacher trainee program to submit a workshop. At this time we are not taking 3rd-year student applications. If you sent in a workshop but don’t see it up, please email us at admin@atcongress.com. We will be happy to look into it!

Workshops are listed by the various categories. We will be posting days of the workshops as soon as we get the room list from Loyola by the end of May.

** If you are scheduled to give a workshop, you must be registered by July 1st or we will have to take your workshop down. Have questions? Please call Carol at 805-798-3929.  We will be starting the process of assigning days and rooms. Thank you!
