JOAN FROST, ACAT '83

ACAT/Joan Frost

ACAT FACULTY (1984–present)
DIRECTOR OF TRAINING (1994–1995 & 2001–2008)

“Consequent to having worn braces on my legs from age 1½ to 3, I had severe back problems into my twenties.  It was only after beginning lessons in the Alexander Technique that I was able, over time, to function without crippling pain. I am extremely grateful to F.M. and my teachers that I am now able to live such a capable and pain-free life. Passing the work on through teaching and training teachers I feel is my calling.”
