Anne Finlay – Alexander and Yoga (Assistant Director)
Associate Director Professional Teacher Training Program
I first encountered the Alexander Technique through a book, this book described the Alexander Technique as providing the potential for change by working with habituated patterns and responses. Wow – that made sense to me and I was on my way to becoming a student, and later a teacher of Alexander Technique.
I trained in Sydney over 20 years ago and have been teaching ever since. I’ve worked with acting colleges, music schools and many individuals in my private practice. I have practiced and taught yoga for 30 years. Before that I was a massage therapist. Clearly, I have a thing for bodies and movement I am fascinated by movement, and how we use our body.
Working at Sydney Alexander Technique is a delight and a privilege. There is a real sense of community with people interacting together exploring their potential. I enjoy watching students take risks, letting go and their self-consciousness dropping away.
I love being in the bush and swimming – both have restorative benefits for me. Spending time with family gives me great joy. Having raised three children, I am now a grandmother of 5. The joy of being a grandmother surprises me time and again.
