Edinburgh Alexander Training School (EATS) is based at Edinburgh’s seaside, Portobello and is currently the only Alexander Technique teacher training course in Scotland.

EATS is approved by, and registered with, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT). STAT is the original, largest and longest established professional body for Alexander teachers.

We offer a comprehensive professional 3-year training course leading to certification to teach the Alexander Technique. Graduates are certified by STAT and are also eligible to register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council‘s UK Register of practitioners.

We also offer an intensive 12-week Foundation course for people wanting to deepen their Alexander skills, understanding and confidence for self-development, and for those who may be considering the full professional training but not yet ready to commit to it.

Participants benefit from working in a small group setting, with a student to trainer ratio of around 3 to 1.
