I have had Alexander Technique classes with different teachers on and off since the 1970s - but by far my most sustained and profitable time has been spent with Madelene. The work is delicate and painstaking - breaking old habits is always a challenge - but with Madelene’s help I have slowly changed from being slightly stooped and feeling my age in my 60s, to an upright, fluid and confident 70 year old. The technique is profound and the physical effects are only a part of the benefit. I would strongly recommend her classes to anyone at any stage of life.
