I have just enjoyed an immensely satisfying week away from Alexander Technique teacher training. My trainer went out to the left coast to attend the AmSAT ACGM…ergo we were off. Hey! It was wonderful not to train for the week! Just absolutely fabulous! Who would have thought? To my astonished delight I did not miss… Read more »

One evening, about two weeks ago, I experienced my all-time best moment in all of my Alexander Technique teacher training. I have gone through almost a year now…excluding time out due to knee surgery. Well, what can I say? I was really, really, really tired…really.

The combination of asthma plus bronchitis is not fun. And then when followed up by pleurisy well…sigh…breathing becomes really painful.  But I am happy to report, that since I’ve been taking Alexander Technique lessons, and especially since I’ve been training to become an Alexander Technique teacher myself, my bouts of this stuff happening to me… Read more »
