Training in London

Roberto had the opportunity to study with Walter Carrington (1915-2005) and Dilys Carrington (1915 - 2009), directors of the Constructive Teaching Centre in London.

Walter and Dilys learned the work directly with Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955), the creator of what is now called the Alexander Technique. A working system to promote well-being through awareness of posture, balance and physical coordination. This awareness would allow individuals to adjust unconscious bodily habits into new patterns which offered a number of physical and mental benefits.

Walter began training in the Alexander Technique in 1936, he was a teacher assistant in the F. M. Alexander training course until his death in 1955. After that he and three other teachers carried on the training course according to Alexander's methods. In 1960 he founded his own school, the Constructive Teaching Centre in Holland Park at 18 Lansdowne Road. This address visited over the years by teachers and students around the world in search of experience and knowledge that the oldest school for training teachers of the Alexander Technique provides. Walter continued to teach at his school continuously until his death in 2005.
