We look forward to welcoming all Alexander Technique teachers, trainees, those who have had AT lessons and any other people who are interested in the Technique.
Accommodation, bed and breakfast, evening entertainments and a Gala Dinner and Dance are included in the regular registration price. If you do not wish to stay at the campus there is a reduction of €300 (or €255 for trainees paying the reduced rate). So if you are an AT teacher you can register for €1173 without accommodation or €1473 with accommodation and breakfast.
Accommodation on-site consists of 6 bedroom apartments (maximum occupancy 6 people) with double beds in each room, en-suite bathroom and a shared living room and kitchen. Couples, friends or groups who wish to stay in the same 6-bed apartment on-site will need to state the names of those they wish to share with when booking, as each person has to register individually - please see our FAQ.
A very limited number of private apartments are also available for couples: please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details, and request this when registering online.
Alternative accommodation is available in nearby hotels and guest houses.
Note: When you register, you will be given the opportunity to choose your Continuous Learning sessions. We suggest that you review the CL page first, and have your three choices to hand. Please note that your chosen presenter may not be available for one of the sessions, but available for another (some sessions are full).

current registration and accommodation fees
€1473 | Current rates will apply between 1 April 2015 and 15 August 2015
For a summary of prices with and without accommodation, and for AT students, family members etc, please see the fee detail page.
registration only (no accommodation)
Please note that you can register for a conference pass only, excluding accommodation, for €300 less (or €255 less if you are a trainee). This option appears on screen two when you go to registration. In case of any queries please contact email@example.com.
alexander teacher trainee fees
The discount for Alexander Technique trainees is 15%.
To be generous to students and newly qualified teachers the discount will apply if you are in training when you register, and if you pay while you are in training, even if you will have qualified by the time the Congress starts.
Please note that the 15% reduction also applies to the accommodation-only discount, normally €300 for Alexander teachers. So if you are making your own arrangements for accommodation then the pro rata reduction in fees would be €255.
Note: This option is only available for trainees in a program that will result in an Alexander Technique teaching certificate.
If you wish to bring a partner or friend who does not wish to participate in the workshops or lectures they pay less than 40% of the Fee rates above. The partner fee includes accommodation (bed & breakfast), evening entertainments and the Gala Dinner Dance on Friday.
NEW: Children under 16 now pay a much reduced rate - less than 25% of the full price.
Please note that the rate for partners, friends and children is fixed, and will not change from now until the Congress. Discounts do not apply. For exact rates please see our fee detail pages.
Important: The partner, friend or child must register individually. You will see a field 'Particular accommodation requirements' - please tick the box and in the space that appear beneath it, please put the name of the person you wish to be accommodated with.
at pupils and interested others
Anyone with an interest in the Technique can register as 'AT Pupil / Interested Other'. You will pay the full registration rate. You will be able to participate in most workshops and lectures (a minority of these are marked as suitable for teachers or trainees only on the website). Accommodation (bed & breakfast), evening entertainments and the Gala Dinner Dance on Friday are all included.
Fáilte Ireland, the Irish tourist board, has generously granted limited supporting funds to the AT Congress. The Congress Directors have decided these funds should be put towards providing scholarship support for those who wish to attend the Alexander Technique Congress in Limerick, Ireland, yet have not already registered and do not have adequate financial means to do so.
The Directors would like to use these funds to encourage as many people as possible who have not already registered to do so.
If you, or anyone you know requires financial assistance at this point, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible expressing your interest.
We will distribute the funds equitably on a case by case basis.. Therefore, please state the following in your email:
- The reason why you would like to be supported financially to attend the Congress.
- Whether you have attended a Congress before and if so which ones.
- How much you can afford to pay towards the price of the Congress pass.
The support Scheme will remain open to requests as long as funding permits, but all requests must be received by 15TH JULY 2015 at the latest. All applications will be given full and careful consideration.
The standard Congress package includes six nights' accommodation at the University of Limerick (UL). You can stay extra nights before or after the Congress, for €50 per night. Please contact UL directly to arrange this, by emailing email@example.com.
Instalment plans are no longer available, as the Congress will take place in the near future!
Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss payment options or registration issues.

how your fees are used
We have made every effort to keep the Congress fees low and ensure that we do not lose money. It is essential that the Congress break even and keep something in reserve for a seed fund for the next Congress. There will be 22 major teaching events and 6 entertainments that you can attend and that breaks down to around €38 per event for a early registration and €32 for a trainee and that includes your bed and breakfast. We feel this is an exceptional value to be able to meet and work with many of the most experienced Alexander Teachers in the World.
