Director of Training

I have been training, teaching and investigating human movement and potential for over 30 years, including 10 years in dancing and 20 as an Alexander Technique teacher. More recently I have spent time in academic study and teaching in the areas of Anatomy and Physiology, Biomechanics and Motor Control. My particular academic interests have focused around the control of movement via reflexes and the use of motor-imagery in influencing motor control.

My discovery of the Alexander technique via a workshop with Master teacher Marjorie Barstow and subsequent professional training with William Brenner was a life changing experience. My professional dance background left me with a range of injuries and tension problems. The technique alleviated the pain from injuries, and improved my ability to move with clarity, ease and enjoyment right from the start. Now I am fascinated by finding ways to improve peoples functioning given their diverse backgrounds, interests and habits. Alexander teaching in that sense is a great journey of discovery with each student.

I have experience in a wide range of settings, and have worked extensively with musicians and singers along with rehabilitation and training in dance, sports and the general public.
