Education

Ongoing three year Alexander Technique Teacher training program.

This is on hold during my third year of training while my concussion heals, I currently can’t handle more than a two hour class in the Technique without a headache and thus cannot continue with intensive training at this time.  I continue to learn and grow in the work and attend small group classes but now anticipate certification closer to 2017.  Fortunately the work has and continues to infuse my teaching and this is the kind of work that grows best when given space so in the long run it is likely to prove for the best.
