Dear Friends from Europe, the US, Japan, and the World:

We invite you to join us for the first ever Canadian ATI AGM.  We will be meeting at Geneva Park, on the shores of scenic Lake Couchiching, adjacent to the town of Orillia, Ontario, just one and a half hours north of Toronto. Click on the blue link to visit.

Meet with colleagues, share work and exchange ideas with an international group of teachers in a lively, inclusive and supportive environment.

Be prepared to enjoy the fresh water lake, crisp, clean air, hiking trails, kayaking, canoeing and fishing.  Close by you can find horseback riding, golfing and the picturesque town of Orillia. Stay longer and you can visit Niagara Falls, the Stratford and Shaw Festivals, wine tastings, and the fabulous multi-cultural city of Toronto, home to innovative dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts.

We look forward to welcoming the world in 2013.

Thank you to our team in Canada for arranging this beautifully interesting, natural and cultural location to be our meeting place in 2013. Our theme this year is all about making connections - connections to each other, to our trainings and the history of this work, to our future and the development of our skills, and connecting to other professionals in our own and related fields: movement, neuroscience, sports, the performing arts and more.

If you would like to present a workshop in your area of interest, please contact our Workshop Planner Susan Sinclair,

In ATI we celebrate diversity in teaching.  We are excited by learning and sharing together.  Please share this invitation with your friends and colleagues. There will be something here for everybody, and a warm welcome for all.

Watch for more details in the Spring of 2013. Check this website and share this event on Facebook

Please note:  for students seeking certification ATI arranges for sponsors to arrive the day before the AGM to facilitate this process. If you would like to attend the Pre Day for certification please contact Stefanie Buller,

We look forward to meeting and welcoming you all in Canada next October!
