ACAT FACULTY (2016–present)

"I came to the Alexander Technique as a result of severe back pain. I found that my yoga practice of 20+ years was no longer able to keep me out of pain, and I needed to find a new way to exist in my body if I was going to stay healthy and active as I approached the age of 50. Not only did the Technique help me understand how I was doing myself harm and how to change that, it helped me find more strength and mobility than I had when I first started practicing yoga in my 20's. It is a joy to bring my experience in yoga, developmental movement and embodied anatomy to training teachers.”
