How can Alexander Technique Teachers make good use of the Web?
In these conversations, Robert and Eileen discuss ways in which Alexander teachers can use the Internet to promote their practice, get new students, and to make the Alexander Technique more widely known.

Some Internet Background
The Future of the Alexander Technique
Here, Robert actually answers Eileen's question and they talk about some specific areas where the Alexander Technique could make major inroads over the next few years. There is a mention of How you Stand, How you Move, How you Live - Learning the Alexander Technique by Missy Vineyard. John Macy, a physical therapist and Alexander Technique teacher is mentioned, as is the Physical Therapy and Alexander Technique Homepage, to which he's made major contributions. There's also a reference to Robert's article, The New Physical Education. The conversation ends with an impassioned plea to Alexander Technique teachers and students to do their bit to help make the Technique better known. Click here to listen to this Conversation
Robert and Eileen again talk about this topic from the point of view of how the internet has changed, and continues to change, the very naure of the Alexander Technique. It includes a major focus on the web's impact on Alexander Technique professional societies and how they have - and mostly have not - adapted to it. There is also a discussion of ways in which the web can now connect Alexander teachers with perspective students. Click here to listen to this Conversation
Here Robert and Eileen talk about effective ways for Alexander Technique teachers to promote their practices, with a emphasis on the web. There is some discussion of FM's own approach to publiciity (he was, in Robert's words, "the original Tweeter") and the paradoxical reluctance of many in the Technique to embrace the new internet opportunities. The Alexander Technique's situation 30 or 30 years ago is compared with conditions today. Click here to listen to this Conversation
