Attended by over 560 Alexander Teachers from 34 different countries, it was a truly global event! The work of Andreas Dirscherl and Rossella Buono, along with Bob Britton was outstanding. Plus, a great support team made the whole event run smoothly.
We look forward to the 13th International Congress, August 3rd to 9th, 2025 – at University College Dublin. The Congress Directors are Michaela Wohlgemuth (Ireland), Kamal Thapen (England) and Michael Frederick (U.S.A.). We are thrilled to be the Directors and are already working to create a unique, inspirational, and fun event!
This Congress will open its doors the first time to the public!
