About the Teacher – Rosemary Murphy
I came to the Alexander Technique some twenty years ago, after suffering back and ankle pain that left me nearly immobile. I tried many treatments (traditional and alternative) with only short-term relief.
Taking lessons in the Technique helped me to eliminate that pain and to regain my freedom of movement. I learned how my habits of moving and patterns of holding tension had been major reasons for my pain. More importantly, I learned how to change those habits and patterns so that I can stay free of pain.
Previously I taught at the elementary level for 35 years, working mostly with children with learning difficulties. Upon retiring from teaching, I completed a three-year training program at The Alexander Technique Studio, with Karen Wentworth in London, England.
I am certified as a teacher of the Alexander Technique by the American Society of Alexander Teachers (AmSAT) and the UK Society of Alexander Teachers (STAT) .
From one kind of teaching to another!
