TODAY: I teach the Alexander Technique in private practice and at the Manhattan JCC for people with Parkinsons.

WHY ALEXANDER? I had taken the Alexander Technique in college and I returned to it when I started to get injured as a scenic painter. For me, the Alexander Technique was wonderfully life changing and I wanted to share it with other people. I switched my career and became an Alexander Technique instructor.

TODAY: I teach the Alexander Technique and mindfulness meditation in private practice and retreats. I also teach The Art of Swimming, a creative swim instruction that utilizes the AT to find more ease, efficiency, and balance in the water.

WHY ALEXANDER? I used the Alexander Technique to help recover from a life-changing injury in my mid-20s where I was unable to hold a book, type, and experienced intense, chronic pain.
