The Auriel Eurythmy modular part-time training is made up of 20 Modules over 5 years. In each of the 5 years there are 4 courses per year. Two are 14 days in length and two are 7 days. Successful completion of the training requires many hours of independent study, practice, written assignments and practicums. From the third year onwards the training modules are supplemented with 3 - 4 days of instruction per week, making it a full-time training.
The Auriel Eurythmy modular part-time training offers the possibility of completing a eurythmy training whilst continuing with existing commitments and schedules.
All courses take place in Mexico City. Course dates are announced on our website under Where andWhen with as much notice as is possible.
Seasonal Courses follow the first year eurythmy curriculum of other full time training institutes. Vowels and consonants are introduced, Dionysian forms are practiced, these, together with pedagogical forms, copper rod exercises and the basic elements of tone eurythmy make up the core of the curriculum. Other subjects taught in these modules include improvisational exercises, consciousness study, art, speech formation, geometry, singing and music theory.

The theme for the year are the gestures for the Zodiac and Planets. . Steiner's indications for the gestures for Planets and the Zodiac constellations are at the heart of eurythmy. The spiritual substance of these gestures nourishes the eurythmist and brings substance and form to movements.

The theme of Elements Courses are the gestures and choreography for the elements and for elemental beings. The movement for the elements can give the aspiring eurythmist the feeling for entering into the being of a movement, to become truly one with gesture and form.

In this year our students also continue their teaching practices at local Waldorf schools.
Performing Courses are Auriel Eurythmy's 4th year or graduation year. They are made up of 4 modules of two weeks and one week in length, as well as continued ongoing instruction for 4 days per week. We prepare a one to two week tour of a children’s program and then work on the graduation program for the remainder of the year.
Students prepare solo forms by Rudolf Steiner and group pieces from a variety of periods. It is our goal to present this graduation program at the Goetheanum in Switzerland. Supplementary classes for this year include stage arts, such as mask making, lighting, make-up and mime. Intensive independent supervised study, 4 days per week of instruction, daily practice, as well as written assignments make up the rest of the course work.
On completion of all 5 years of training our students will receive a Goetheanum recognised eurythmy diploma, based on individual merit. Everyone will receive an Auriel Eurythmy certificate of completion.
