Penny specialises in working with people involved in the performing arts. She is constantly delighted by the change performers can bring to their work by using the Alexander Technique and how great and happy they become, it is so exciting when a performer finishes performing and can say “that felt good”.
I first had Alexander Technique lessons when I was working as an actor in a street theater company. This work was very demanding physically an on the voice. After Alexander Lessons I found everything became easier, I felt lighter and my voice carried further and with no strain. I have found over the years that I respond well to stressful situations and am generally very happy.
