John Nicholls trained with Walter and Dilys Carrington, and remained with them for eleven years assisting daily on the teacher training course and maintaining a large private practice. In 1986 he gave the annual STAT Alexander Memorial Lecture, which was published under the title: 'The Alexander Technique in a Larger Context.'

He then spent three years in Australia, directing the Melbourne Alexander Teacher Training School. After this he returned to the UK as Director of a teacher training course in Brighton. His book, The Alexander Technique: In Conversation with John Nicholls and Sean Carey, was published in 1991, and between 1990 and 2002 John also ran seminars for the public and regular post-graduate classes for teachers in Britain, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Italy, Australia and the USA.

In 2003 John moved to New York City where he offers private lessons, 'hands-on' supervision groups for teachers, a teacher certification program, and structured postgraduate courses for teachers. John has been a featured guest teacher at several AmSAT Conferences and international congresses, gave the AmSAT Alexander Memorial Lecture (entitled 'Where Are We Going?') in 2005, and has continued to make teaching visits to London, other parts of Europe, Australia and Brazil.
