In these past few weeks, I managed to make it down to Hilo, (about an hour and a half drive) to trade work with the only other Alexander Technique teacher I have met on the Big Island named Michael Joeseph. His work with me was very much like Patrick MacDonald's work (MacDonald was one of the last students of Alexander's, he was nicknamed "the mechanic.") Michael Joeseph had never actually met either character, having been trained after the death of both of them, but one of Michael's other talents was in mechanical engineering. Because of this, it is very curious to me to experience how the quality of Alexander's work is being passed on so accurately.
I'm happy to announce that near the end of the month starting on Monday evening Sept. 24th at 6pm and continuing on Thurs at the same time and place, I am teaching ten twice weekly classes on Alexander's principles through www.waimeaeducation.com The classes are a real deal if you have never studied Alexander Technique before for reasons of the cost of private lessons which cost from $65 - $100 each; these introductory classes are only $10. each! Because Alexander Technique takes some time to learn, required attendance is for at least three weeks of class, (six classes.) So for less of the cost of one private lesson, you can get six classes in Alexander Technique! What a deal!
If you have any questions about the classes and ended up here, please feel free to ask your questions in the comments section. I'll come up with some answers, we can put them together and we'll see if they work for you!
