"Studying Alexander Technique with Kate has been extraordinary and, with awareness that this might sound melodramatic, life changing. . . What I think makes Kate really special is the sense of play she brings to the work. It is hard not to share in the joy she obviously has in these explorations. . . I wholeheartedly recommend studying with her to anyone with even the slightest interest in Alexander Technique."

What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a unique tool of self-management that offers you independence in maintaining your health, and teaches you to use your body efficiently and economically.
Unlike relaxation therapies or massage, the Alexander Technique is utilized when you are active. It offers you a chance to discover your habitual reactions to stimuli, to suspend them, and to have a choice in your responses. The Alexander Technique teaches you to calm your own nervous system, release your own muscles and balance your own structure.
