“In 1998, while living in Tel Aviv, I had an accident that left me with a broken leg. On the road to recovery, I came upon a man called Sheik Hermelin, an Alexander teacher. Within a few lessons I got my mobility back, and more. My every move became lighter and more direct. Flexibility came into play. I began to understand how to help myself and not get in my own way. It became reason for my present path. I love the open and practical approach. That is what the technique is all about.”
