Assistants:

Roger Savage

Roger has had a long time interest in FM Alexander’s teaching, particularly with its emphasis on the integrated use of the Self. Alexander discovered and developed a practical and effective means of learning to prevent harmful habits of use and allowing a simple and natural integration of the Self in day to day living. To return to good use of our self is essential for all of us who live in our highly mechanical and technical society, which has the tendency, through the force of repetitive harmful habits of use, to cut ourselves off from our self.

Roger began studying the FM Alexander principle in 2007 and has completed a 3 year training course and is certified to teach the Alexander Technique by AUSTAT, the Australian Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique. He continues to study this fine and immensely valuable teaching and has a private practice located in Neutral Bay Sydney.
