INA PARIS, ACAT '09

ACAT/Ina Paris

ACAT ASSOCIATE FACULTY (2015 & 2017)
ACAT VOLUNTEER TEACHER (2009–2016)

“I felt very motivated after my first AT lesson (2003) and began training three years after. My chronic neck pain from playing the violin disappeared during the lesson and remained gone even hours after. I always feel enthusiastic in terms of incorporating Alexander work into my musical endeavors – both playing and teaching. My background as a musician has given me extensive knowledge that helps me understand the problems and difficulties facing performing artists, and I love sharing with trainees what I've learned from teaching AT to musicians."
