My Qualifications and Experience

I am a teacher of the Alexander Technique, and Head of Training of the Alexander Technique School, Queen’s Park.

Ilana Machover

I trained for three years with Misha Magidov at his North London Teacher Training Course, qualifying as an AT teacher in 1984. I am a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) since then. From 1986 to 2003 I was an assistant at the NLTTC, training students to become AT teachers. I opened the Alexander Technique School, Queen’s Park in January 2004.

I run a private practice from my home in Queen’s Park, London. I am known locally and have had many students from my neighbourhood. I am on good terms with my local NHS clinic, and the GPs at this clinic occasionally refer to me some of their patients.

My students come from all walks of life, including many actors and musicians. Since 1984, when an AT department was established at the Royal Academy of Music, I have been a teacher in this department. On 27 January 2015 I was appointed Honoray Associate of the Royal Academy of Music.

I have published extensively and conducted many workshops on the AT.

I am a childbirth educator and a doula. My eutokia classes, which are based on the Alexander Technique, prepare women for childbirth. I also run special eutokia workshops: training AT teachers to work with pregnant women and accompany them in childbirth as doulas.

I am also a qualified teacher of Medau Rhythmic Movement.
