Poised posture, fluid movement
I teach people how to use their bodies more efficiently so that they can do what they do better and more comfortably. The method I teach, the Alexander Technique, helps people unravel tension patterns they’ve had for most of their lives and regain poised posture as well as fluidity and ease of movement. In addition, I am a musician and music teacher.
Listen to NPR Morning Edition featuring the Alexander Techique on March 28, 2011:
The Mayo Clinic’s Medical Edge Series report on the Alexander Technique:
The Alexander Technique is a process for identifying and changing habits of misuse which cause tension, stress, and pain, and limit functioning. With lessons in the Alexander Technique, you can regain your body’s innate coordination and poise, allowing you to do everything you do with greater ease and improved quality.

Is your misused back saying “ouch!”?
Don’t just collapse on the couch.
Strengthen a little here, relax a little there.
You’ll see you’ll feel better if you don’t slouch!
