Alexander Technique teacher, Amanda Blair MacDonald joins Tami Bulmash to discuss how the Alexander Technique can improve all aspects of life. In this latest episode of the Body Wisdom podcast, Amanda shares how her studies in Brain Compatible movement practices and her experience as Movement Pattern Analyst have further informed her approach to helping individuals thrive in their personal and professional lives.
Amanda grew up loving music and dance. Along with her musical theatre training, she studied yoga, Pilates, floor barre and various styles of dance, and finally found the Alexander Technique. One of her early teachers helped her understand that The Alexander Technique teaches awareness about the underpinnings of all movement, and therefore allows for a deepening in all other practices. Amanda’s skills improved and her desire to share what she knew through teaching blossomed, and she entered an Alexander teacher training course. Amanda provides professional development for teachers, corporate workshops, online group classes, and private lessons. Later this summer she’ll be launching the first in a series of online courses and a podcast series.
