Fumie Hosoi

Profile-Fumie Hosoi

Fumie Hosoi (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique) is currently the sole Head of Training certified by STAT in Asia. She studied Alexander Technique at the North London Teacher Training Course under Misha Magidov, and after her training, she stayed in London to teach private students as well as working as a visiting teacher at the training school. Her pupils included many music students from the Royal Academy of Music and the Purcell School of Music. She has worked with master teachers and trainers such as Marjory Barlow, Shoshana Kaminitz, Giora Pinkas as well as Yehuda Kuperman.

At the end of 2004 she returned to Japan and started the Alexander Technique Studio in Tokyo (ATST). Since then she has given many sessions for musicians and actors, classes at universities as well as one-on-one private lessons. In 2013 she was given permission by STAT to open a training course in Tokyo, and it is currently the only STAT certified school in Asia. She has worked through lectures and workshops with organizations such as Suntory Hall Academy, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre and the National University of the Arts. Since 2016 summer, she started a week-long workshop series titled “Alexander Technique and the Performing Arts” which includes a series of various performing arts workshops, linking them to exploring the understanding and practice of Alexander Technique. Through these workshops she has collaborated and invited master teachers such as Ilan Rachel (AT and movement teacher, Royal Academy of Drama), Yusuke Kanai (National Treasure, Noh) and Masami Iizuka (conductor, Ensemble Sonare).

In 2015 her article The Technique as Personal Cultivation: A Japanese Perspective was published in a collective book Connected Perspectives, The Alexander Technique in Context (published by HITE Healthcare Integrated Training & Education), and in 2017 her Japanese translation of Patrick Macdonald’s book As I See It received many positive reviews, and in 2019 will be reprinted for further editions.

Fumie’s other experience and qualifications includes an extensive teaching experience as a Japanese language teacher in major schools in Japan and Singapore, including the National University of Singapore. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Philosophy.

One-to one lessons: ~an easy way to learn~

Everybody has their own problems and different habitual pattern of tension. One-to-one lessons allows us to work with each individual needs.The Alexander Technique is about changing your unconscious bad habits, where taking an initiative yourself on daily basis is absolutely vital. As special exercises and equipments are not necessary, age, physical fitness or spacial capacity is not an issue.

About the STAT

In 1958 (three years after Alexander’s death) STAT was founded by the assistants and teachers who were trained by Alexander.
The aims of the Society are: to maintain and to improve professional standards, to prevent abuse by untrained people and to make the Technique more widely known.
The teaching members of STAT are certified to teach after successfully completing a three-year, full-time training course approved by the Society.

Student experiences

As a musician in New York City, excellence is always demanded. Playing the double bass can be quite taxing on your body. The awkward size of the instrument requires you to be in positions not natural to the human body for the many hours of the day it requires to perform at a high level. Alexander Technique helps me use my body in a way that is as comfortable as possible when performing. It prevents me from constantly crouching over my instrument so left-hand technique is made much easier by giving me space for movement. Because I stand taller when I play, my stage presence has improved and has given me confidence on stage. Without this extra stress, I can perform at my full potential at all times.

In Ms. Hosoi’s lessons I found her direction to be very clear and concise yet never forceful. When she uses her hands to guide my position, she never forced any motion on me. Her touch was guiding and helped me feel what Alexander Teachers teach. After lessons I found every day tasks such as walking, sitting, standing, to require less effort. When I returned home to New York City I noticed the difference immediately when I started to practice. Relaxation on the double bass was finally possible and hardly required any extra thought. After Ms. Hosoi’s lessons I noticed that the main issue of my body was the use of my back. I plan to continue Alexander Technique to fully explore the use of my back and try to make it as effective as possible. Even though I only had three lessons with Ms. Hosoi, I have been truly enlightened by Alexander Technique. If a trip to Japan was as easy as taking a taxi downtown, I would absolutely continue my lessons with Ms. Hosoi. Her words still ring through my head whenever I sit, practice, eat, or do anything “Keep your back, back.” Thank you Ms. Hosoi for guiding me in the right direction to be able to perform at my full potential whenever it is required.
