Alexander Technique Teacher [Wednesdays]
My name is Ellie Rouse and I am an Alexander Technique teacher at Educare Small School. During my training as an AT teacher it became very clear to me how much the Alexander Technique could help children with their learning at school (and in life!) My original intention was to teach actors as this was my background before I re trained as an AT teacher. I had no idea how to teach children the Technique, it seemed such a difficult concept even for me to understand!. Luckily Sue Merry and Judith Klienman ran their first Developing Self Course the year I graduated. This is where I discovered so many more things about the technique and how to approach teaching children. After completing the course I taught in a nursery school teaching 4 and 5 year olds as well as workshops at several primary schools. I now work with children and young adults both privately and in schools and colleges. When I’m not at Educare or teaching privately, I’m usually out walking my spaniel, Bobby.
