Class Description:
F.M. Alexander discovered that a proper relationship of the head, neck and back is key to an efficiently functioning mind and body. Alexander technique is a useful tool in prevention and recovery from neck and back injuries, chronic pain, orthopaedic disorders, and chronic health problems (e.g. Asthma, sciatica, etc). Additionally, actors, dancers, musicians, and athletes (professional and recreational) find studying the technique improves their overall performance. Overall, the technique is a useful tool to anyone seeking to reduce stress, fatigue, and tension accumulated in the workplace and in daily activities. Maggie McRae will be introducing the technique and it's principles and applications.

Maggie is an m.AmSAT certified Alexander Technique Teacher. She studied and received her teaching certification in Newton, Massachusetts with Ruth Kilroy. Maggie was first introduced to the Alexander Technique through her music studies. She began taking lessons after breaking her ankle and having surgery in 2011. Maggie initially sought out Alexander Technique lessons to aid in her recovery process, but has found that her studies have enriched every aspect of her life from music, to walking, to horseback riding, to cooking and cleaning.
