In my early twenties after a shoulder operation removing some muscle tissue, to prevent repeated dislocations, I started to experience constant right hip pain. As no recommendations were given to alleviate my pain, I tried to discover if there was anything I could do, but all my attempts at finding a cure, resulted in making the situation worse.
My life changed after watching the last 20 minutes of an AT Documentary on Channel 4. I instantly realised that AT was the solution to my problems. Within 24 hours I found myself a Teacher and have never looked back, as within a relative short time, I was pain free. This made me a very dedicated pupil and eventually a passionate Alexander Teacher.
I have gained plenty of experience as to what it’s like to recover from surgery with or without practicing AT, as later in life I needed an anterior cruciate ligament knee operation from which I recovered, to the astonishment of my surgeon, very quickly.
Apart from private lessons and group workshops, I also give regularly public talks to promote better awareness of Alexander’s remarkable and sadly often overlooked scientific discoveries, which could provide a way forward for human development.
