Q. How do I access the early bird price?
A. The Early bird fee is $440 for 4 days of workshopping.
To access this early bird rate please email Janet and she will raise an invoice for you. firstname.lastname@example.org. Early bird rate is open for the first 20 people that register prior to 30 November (and is only available for bookings for the full four day workshop)
Q. Is there a payment plan option?
A. Payment Plans are available. Please get in touch with Janet and she will outline the options for you.
Q. Are there any discounts for students/ concession holders?
A. The early bird rate of $440 is the best rate we can offer for the 4 day workshop.
Q. What will happen if COVID health orders do not allow the workshop to proceed?
A. We will always be in alignment with NSW Health orders. This may mean wearing masks while in the workshop. This will definitely mean ensuring we sign people in and out of the workshop.
In the circumstance that COVID health orders require no public gatherings we will transform the event into an online event. Participants will have the choice to join the online event (at a reduced cost) or request a refund. Please cross every finger and toe, we really want to be able to put this workshop on!
Q. What accommodation is available?
A. The upper Blue Mountains has every level and style of accommodation on offer from backpackers to luxury hotels. There are also many holiday homes for lease. For those with a car I suggest saying between the townships of Lawson and Blackheath. This means a car ride of less than 30 minutes to and from the venue in Katoomba. Please get in touch if you’d like more accommodation information. The first day will begin at 10am. You can arrive the day before or travel early on Thursday 20 Jan.
Q. Will the workshop be relevant for me if I haven’t done any Alexander Technique?
A. Yes. We welcome people new to the BodyMinded Alexander Technique. You will be warmly welcomed and you will find that our approach to learning and teaching is adaptable and responsive to the needs of the participants.
Q. Can I book a private lesson as well?
A. Yes. A great idea if you are traveling from interstate. Please email email@example.com. A 45 minute lesson with one of our qualified teachers is $99 (GST incl). Lessons with teacher trainees may also be available. These are supervised and a 30 minute lesson is $25 (GST incl).
Q. How is the BodyMinded Practictioner Training linked to this workshop?
A. 2022 BodyMinded Practitioner Training students attend the 4 day workshop as part of their overall study and it is included in their training fee. We strongly encourage BodyMinded Practictioner 2022 students to attend the summer intensive as it sets up the foundation principles for your study in 2022.
If you are a Practictioner student and cannot attend the Summer Intensive, we will make sure you get the foundation information in another way.
Q. How is the teacher training linked to this workshop?
A. We expect the teacher trainees will be part of the Summer Intensive. Some will be offering supervised table turns or mini lessons. The Summer Intensive is an important learning opportunity to see various teachers working in a larger group format and there will be specific sessions for review and discussion about the teaching pedagogy of the workshop with teacher trainees.
