“How To Really
An Introduction to:
The 1st Alexander Technique Teacher Training System
Developed Specifically For Online Teaching
“You Can Do What I Do,
If You’ll Do What I Did.”
Hi…I’m Mio Morales. I’m an Alexander teacher/trainer who trained with Dr. Frank Pierce Jones and Marjorie Barstow from 1972-1993.
Since 2005, I’ve been teaching & training Alexander teachers online using a unique approach to the Alexander Technique I call PrimalAlexander™(P.A.)
PrimalAlexander™ is a hands-free, distance teaching method that’s already providing tremendous benefit to a growing community of traditionally trained Alexander teachers.
It’s a comprehensive, systematic approach shaped by more than 3,000 online teaching hours of research. It’s an approach that’s a perfect fit for the truly challenging situation we currently find ourselves in.
But perhaps the best thing about PrimalAlexander™ is that it promises to be the ideal vehicle for any Alexander teacher who wants to add to their tool kit, hone current skills or be able to easily reach, teach and keep more students living anywhere in the world.
“It’s true value goes way
beyond just online teaching!”
A Modern Version of An
Old Way of Working
Back To The Future
It was through experimentation & self-observation that the Alexander Technique came into being. En route to solving his vocal problems, Alexander created what he called:
“A new field of practical experimentation upon the living human being.”
Inhibition, Direction, Non-doing, Mind/Body Unity and all of Alexander’s other seminal discoveries came to light as a direct result of his expansive explorations in that field. He even taught that way for many years.
PrimalAlexander™ is a comprehensive but intuitive teaching & learning system where the focus in this session is upon four areas
- Helping students detect when the way they are thinking interferes with their moving.
- Giving them tools to use as soon as they notice that interference starting to happen.
- Providing a home practice regimen to sharpen those tools & increase their overall understanding & awareness.
- Creating a learning environment that supports their efforts and keeps them engaged & motivated.
increasingly more aware of the relationship between how they are thinking and how they’re moving. At it’s heart is a process called 3EasyQuestions.

hands-on work the process is taken over by the hands. PA goes back a step to the process. PA teaches you an updated version of Alexander’s process.
Learning How to Experiment
P.A.’s focus is upon 4 things:
Although hands on work can be a powerful agent of change in the life of a student, unfortunately, when it comes to their learning how to work on themselves it can be disempowering actually impeding that kind of learning.
From the very 1st lesson, the goal of PrimalAlexander™ is to empower students in their own learning. To help them experience & understand how the thinking choices they’re making create the movement results they’re getting.
Rethinking of conscious control
Through activities, changes in perspective & novel strategies, P.A. lays out a course for students that leads to a practical understanding of the essential principles of Alexander’s work that can be put into practice more easily.
I want them to be able to apply Inhibition, Non-Endgaining, Non-doing and Thinking in Activity so that their sensory appreciation can become reliable enough for them to detect when they begin to interfere with their natural coordination.

From the very outset of my own training, besides being in absolute awe of the fact that Alexander solved his vocal problems and without benefit of receiving hands-on guidance…
I often wondered how the Alexander Technique might have evolved if F.M. had continued to explore using only words, voice and presence as the means whereby he taught. What if he had just never decided to use his hands?
What Alexander was able to do he did so by developing his powers. His latent powers of observation, attention and persistence and most importantly: Conscious Control, his power to change his habitual responses to stimuli.
Here are some of the results their students have reported
THERE ARE A LOT OF GREAT TEACHERS OUT THERE BUT…
HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO THEY HAVE TEACHING ONLINE
WHAT SYSTEM DO THEY HAVE.
Here are some of the benefits that teachers are experiencing from learning to work this way
- Deepen their hands-on work
- Sharpen their observation
- Boost their sensitivity
- Clarify their direction
- Enhance their intuition
- Amp up their awareness PLUS
- Reach, teach and keep more students
Teachers in their own words…
