I discovered the Alexander Technique because it was recommended to me as a solution to muscle spasms and back pain that were so bad that I couldn’t work at the computer, and much less dance. Like many people, I had a stressful job and sat for long hours at the computer, which I “balanced” with physical activity. I taught zouk lambada (a Brazilian partner dance) and danced Brazilian and Argentine dance, but I also hurt myself dancing. At the time I didn’t realize that my pain and the muscle contractions were caused by poor use of myself in all my activities in daily life.
I tried Alexander Technique classes because I wanted to live free of pain and I realized I had to change something. I didn’t want to run in circles anymore as I did in my busy life, and I was ready for a new lifestyle. I learned to use the computer without hurting myself, to dance with balance but without unnecessary strain and to live without unnecessary tension.
I began my teacher training at the Toronto School of the Alexander Technique, and I graduated from the Escuela de Técnica Alexander de Buenos Aires. I am certified by the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique, and I am a member of the American Society for the Alexander Technique and the Asociación Argentina de Técnica Alexander. I also play the violin and enjoy dancing and running.
I currently conduct private and group classes and in-company training in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and in the state of Montana in the U.S. Classes are in English, Spanish or Japanese. Please contact me to schedule a class or training program.
