Welcome to the Philadelphia School for the Alexander Technique! We are a vibrant learning community offering an innovative, individualized, and flexible program of study in the Alexander Technique under the direction of master teacher Martha Hansen Fertman.

Established in 1984, our training program meets in Philadelphia for 10 training sessions per year and is endorsed by  Alexander Technique International (ATI). Our schedule is structured to meet the demands of students’ busy personal and professional schedules outside of their Alexander Technique training and is particularly well suited for motivated learners.

Our comprehensive teacher training course yields highly competent and creative Alexander Technique teachers. Students can expect to receive highly individualized attention in a safe, welcoming, and fun learning environment. Our studies follow the lineage of Marjorie Barstow’s teaching with particular attention to activity work and group teaching, in addition to private one-on-one instruction.
