It is a challenge to try to summarize the experience [of the Alexander Technique], as I find it (and it finds me) being the constant change, not there to be grasped. The most measureable is the sharpening of all the senses. My violinist ears react to the most subtle nuances in the sound and the experience is that of all the senses 'working' on the sound (and the means that are producing it), when I play. This has made possible the greater awareness in the moment present. [A musician] is only able to do something about the sound (the moment) that is being produced, nothing past nor nothing to come. With all that, of course, comes freedom. The breathing, the freedom of movement, the freshness, the spontaneity, the creativity, the joy of it all. Through the Alexander training I am becoming more whole: as a person, as an artist.

STAT publishes a newsletter - Statnews - which is distributed to members three times per year. A free sample copy is available prospective advertisers on request, by emailing your request with your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Announcements (similar to a classified ad). For non-members announcements cost 20p per word, with a minimum charge of £6. Please just email the words and the editor will put them in for you. (For Members of STAT or Affiliated Societies, announcements are free).
Boxed adverts are £60 for one quarter of an A4 page (85mm X 126mm), or pro rata for half a page or a full page. Boxed adverts can be emailed in any standard format (eg PDF). Or you can email the words and any pictures or logo and the Editor can make the advert up for no extra charge.
A loose flyer usually costs around £250, depending on postage costs. If you are producing the flyer especially for Statnews, the Editor needs to approve a final proof before you go to print, and you are responsible for delivering the required number of copies to the STAT office in London or at the printers' address. Please check with the STAT Office before mailing any material. You can specify which categories of member are to receive your flyer (for example, it may not be worth sending them overseas).
All advertising copy and enquiries (other than about payment - for which see the next section) should be emailed to the editor, Jamie McDowell, at email@example.com.
Advertisements are accepted at the Editor's discretion. The advertising policy for Statnews and mailouts is available as a pdf by clicking here
Advertisers must provide an invoice name and address when placing an advert. Invoices are issued by the STAT Office shortly after publication. Any enquiries about payment methods and the like should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or use our Contact Form.
The deadlines for Statnews are as follows:
- January issue - end of November
- May issue - end of March
- September issue - end of July
Another option that may be of interest is an announcement/notice on the Members' section of the STAT website. For example you might run a multidisciplinary clinic and wish to employ an Alexander Teacher.
