Message from the Chair: AGM 2011
Welcome to the AGM 2012 in Germany
We are delighted to host you in Germany for the AGM 2012 of Alexander Technique International. The 20th birthday of ATI!
The meeting place lies in northern Germany, in Papenburg (this means Castle Papen), in the midst of the pure flat land. The coast is close and at the end of October a fresh breeze can blow here, or Germany can have warm and sunny autumn days, inviting for long walks or bicycle tours.
The HÖB, this year's meeting place, is suitable for both weather conditions. There is a wide park and a lake to enjoy the nature. At the end of the day you can sit by the fireside with a fresh beer or a nice wine.
Hamburg and our neighbouring countries, Holland and Denmark, are not far away and ideal for beautiful day trips.
We have an extensive workshop program on offer with Alexander Teachers from all over the world! See the schedule list for the variety of teachers, styles and subjects.
We are excited to be hosting the AGM and its stimulating and interesting classes. We will enjoy nice days learning with people from many countries. We hope that you can be with us.

A Note from the Chair
Thank you to Jan and the team for welcoming us to Germany this year. I am looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones as we celebrate this 20 year milestone.
The Board have decided to keep the registration costs the same with no early or late fee. This is for ease of entry for all. Our founder members will take us through our history and our workshops will be moving us forward as we take up this year’s theme into the next twenty years.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Fiona Cranwell (ATI Chair)
