I came into the Alexander Technique shortly after my 50th birthday, with the intention of engaging in a practice that would above all sustain and nourish me into my middle and later years and which I could share with others.
I consider it to be a priceless form of health insurance.
I have a background in Physiotherapy and worked in NHS hospitals for 13 years with experience in trauma, intensive care and rehabilitation. I also had a particular interest in neurology. I later specialised in ante-natal, childbirth and post-natal care, when I worked in Torbay Maternity Unit.
When family life took priority I pursued my lifelong passion of music from home and have been a performing, accompanying and teaching pianist for the last 20 years.
To celebrate my 50th year I learnt Beethoven’s last 3 epic piano sonatas and then in 2011, took them with me while I cycled 3500 miles from Denmark to Greece, performing them wherever pianos showed up. The journey is known as “Beethoven by Bike”!
I drew daily on the Alexander Technique as my fount of physical and emotional well-being.
I love this work and am happy to have the opportunity to share the inspiration of it as I teach. There is a spacious beauty and a peacefulness (as well as so many practical beneﬁts) that is hard to deﬁne, but which for me, is at the core of learning the Technique.
