If at first you don’t succeed, don’t try again. Try something else.....

Located in Fulham, not too far from Chelsea, Hammersmith, Barnes, Richmond, Wandsworth and Putney, we offer:

         

  1.   Alexander Technique Lessons

  2.   An Alexander Technique Teacher Training Course

  3.   A service for the business and the professions, Ribeaux Consulting


By remaining small we are able to maintain sound principles, uniformity and consistency of teaching and a standard of excellence without frills.  We are members of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique, www.stat.org.uk.  Our teacher training course is recognised by STAT.

 

Who are we?


Ellie Ribeaux has been teaching the Alexander Technique for over 45 years.  After training she studied biodynamic psychology with Gerda Boysen as well as attending courses in a variety of personal development methods. Formerly a biology teacher, she has taught and given workshops in the Technique to people from many walks of life in a number of different countries including Denmark, Germany and Israel. 


Peter Ribeaux has been an Alexander Teacher for over 45 years.   He has given workshops in Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Israel, Switzerland and the USA and has taught the Alexander Technique in a number of different settings ranging from the  performance arts to the aerospace industry. Formerly a university lecturer in organisational psychology, he has also been a council member of STAT and is currently a member of the Moderators Panel and the Training Course Committee of STAT. 


We were trained by Patrick Macdonald, who was trained by FM Alexander himself, and ran one of three training courses which immediately succeeded Alexander’s death in 1955. We have both had work from a number of other first generation Alexander Teachers including Peter Scott, Walter Carrington, Bill and Marjory Barlow, Dick and Elisabeth Walker, Irene Stewart and Eric de Peyer


We are the longest established Alexander Technique teacher trainers in the UK, opening our course in September 1984.   Since then we have graduated some hundred teachers who work in establishments as varied as multinational corporations and drama and music colleges all over the world.   The Centre is situated in our house in Fulham near the River Thames in south-west London. 


A number of other experienced teachers regularly visit the class.  They include Michael Meeneghan, Pauline Ghosal and Yoshi Inada, all highly experienced and each bringing their own particular flavour to the work.


Our STAT moderator is Anne Battye.
