I'm Tracy Gil. I have been teaching the Alexander Technique in Bristol for the last 18 years. In addition to being a teacher, I originally worked as a nurse for 18 years, specialising first in intensive care and then in neurology & neurosurgery. However, this didn't help me to deal with my own chronic back pain when it began to seriously affect my daily activities. It was then that I began to look into the Alexander Technique and learn it for myself.
As well as obtaining considerable relief from my back problem, I discovered many unexpected benefits, which have truly changed my life for the better. I'm calmer and find I can think more clearly. If difficulties do arise, I am better able to find my way through them, without putting obstacles in my own way. And best of all, I laugh a lot more!
trainingIn order to share these benefits with others, in 1994 I undertook a 4 year teacher training course in the Interactive Teaching Method (ITM) for teaching the work of F M Alexander. I have been running a private practice in Bristol for just over 18 years and have been coordinating the ITM Teacher Training Course since 2008. I have enjoyed teaching at the Welsh College of Music and Drama and also giving workshops for singers, physiotherapists, primary health care teams and staff at General Electric and Deloitte in Bristol.
In 2012 I did an additional four years of training to become an ITM Teacher Trainer, qualifying in June 2016.
I am a member of the ITM Teachers Association and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I hold full insurance and work according to a strict code of conduct.
