Testimonials

“If you are not sure whether Alexander Technique is for you, understand that it is not the same as any other modality out there, while being compatible with all of them.  It is so powerful that it’s had a challenge of seeming to claim the impossible. It delivers.”
~ Joshua Myrvaagnes

“Emily is so utterly present with me and in this presence, has taught me not to abandon myself in times of nervousness, excitement, fear or panic. “
