Find Alexander Technique teachers who use Skype or other on-line or phone services as part of their teaching practice
In the view of many - but not all - Alexander Technique teachers, "hands-on" work is an important (some would say crucial) element of Alexander Technique teaching. On the other hand, Alexander teachers are excellent observers of human movement, and much of our work involves teaching our students how to usefully direct themselves out of harmful patterns of posture and movement. And to a certain extent, at least, this can be accomplished without direct physical contact using, for example, Skype's video capacity. Most teachers who do this kind of teaching have opted not to call what they do "Alexander Technique teaching" but prefer to use terms like "Movement Coaching" or the like.
Certainly if you live somewhere where there are no Alexander teachers, or are so far away from a teacher that regular lessons are not a possibility, you might want to explore distance learning from one or more of the teachers below. If there are Alexander Technique teachers near you and you decide to explore distance learning first, you would probably do well to have at least a few "in person" lessons at some point.
You can listen to Alexander Technique teachers who use Skype talk about the process here: bodylearningcast.com/teachers/distancelearning
Skype is a free download and Skype to Skype calls are free. I've listed teachers below by continent only because of time zone considerations. For Skype calls themselves, location is irrelevant.
