Alexander Technique YouTube videos

Until recently, most Alexander Technique archive clips have been locked away, gathering dust. In January 2008, STAT (The Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique) launched their own YouTube channel, posting 29 videos which have so far had over 16,000 views between them.

STAT’s channel is at:

Their most popular video is this short clip of FM teaching:

The video description of this clip, gives details of where to order the longer DVD (via Mouritz).
Hopefully this experiment will have sold more DVDs and so will eventually prompt further releases – though STAT haven’t added any new archive videos to their channel since its release.
