Embodied mindfulness & pain rehabilitation
For living well
What can I expect in an Alexander Technique class
The benefits of this work include:
Greater ease and freedom of movement
Relief from pain and strain
Increased confidence and ease
Greater clarity about your self and to accurately perceive your body
Greater ability to self-regulate reactions
Calming of mind and nervous system
Greater ability to be present
Better coordination and balance
More benefit from exercise and injury prevention
How long are one-on-one sessions?
Sessions are generally 40-60 minutes. This is highly individual. Your first session may be up to 90 minutes to allow us time to get to know each other and to hear your story..
What should I wear?
Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move and potentially lie down in. Please avoid wearing jeans, skirt or bulky or stiff clothes. You might like to have socks. You can keep your shoes on if you prefer but removing them will give your feet and your body more information. You will need to remove shoes for table work.
Are there group classes?
I occasionally offer group classes in Alexander Technique, mindful movement, elasticity, balance, breath and other topics. See the class offerings page for current group classes.

“Mari is an exceptional Alexander technique facilitator! I entered her sessions feeling all wonky and out of sorts, by the time I left I felt grounded, taller, and relaxed in my body. Her gentle words and touch really allowed my body to let go of the tension I’d been holding on for years. I’m forever grateful to Mari for the opportunity to learn Alexander technique and the powerful effects it has on the mind/body.”
“I recently had several sessions with Mari due to problems I was hating dealing with my posture which was painful to me. I was in constant pain. Mari helped me regain my posture and gave me techniques to use to retrain my body muscles to support my posture. Truly a godsend. The results have been significant and were noticeable to my friends. I’m improving at a rapid rate. Totally Recommend Mari”
“As a dentist I contort myself to see my patients, which causes neck and back pain. Mari has really helped me to learn how to use my body the way my body wants to move to take care of myself.”
