Each of us has the potential to solve our greatest mysteries, but first, we must learn what we need to discover. Often, even with the use of a looking glass, our brains can sense the issues, but our bodies remain in the dark.

For some, this is why we embark on the Alexander journey — as James Taylor would say, “I ain’t asking for details; won’t you just give me a clue.”

Happily, an Alexander teacher’s hands can become the perfect mirror, gently cajoling areas long dormant into a keen presence, helping those muscles and joints finally see and breathe.

This is why and how I’ve studied with Amira Glaser and continue to do so.

You have magic hands, I felt a lot of compassion and love in your presence. I really enjoyed the treatment I received yesterday from you. It was really beneficial, I felt a lot of grounding and more stability. I also slept well. The formula you gave me is also good, soothing and calming.

I have a good relationship with my body–I enjoy hiking and dancing, I have a long term yoga practice, and I’m also a body worker professionally. I started coming to Amira a few months ago because, despite all that, I had some patterns of holding tension and stress in my body that I thought Alexander technique might help me with. At the heart of it, I just wanted to feel more at home in my body and more at ease with my breath. I felt intuitively that Amira had something special to offer, and I was right 🙂 At least once during every session, my mind gets blown. I don’t exactly know how she does it, but she somehow guides my body and my mind to find what relaxation and internal spaciousness feels like, both in stillness and with movement. And it’s like once I feel what it feels like, I can return there on my own much more easily. It’s a reconditioning or repatterning that is having a positive effect all areas of my life. I am really grateful Amira is here offering her skills and expertise. I highly recommend her!

I had a session with Amira a couple of weeks ago. She held me safely with her compassionate and accepting attention. While her confident and knowledgeable expertise was administered smoothly and precisely. All of which aided my ability to relax, be comfortable and open. I highly recommend having a professional Amira experience.

Amira is wonderful! Her workshop at honeysuckle tea house was great!  I like her enthusiasm, acceptance, and clarity in describing things.

Amira is the only teacher I’ve ever had who remembers my habits and challenges, even when I haven’t seen her for a while, and creates a personalized arsenal to make things better. She saw me through the different physical challenges of a stressful teaching job, a stressful desk job, pregnancy and early parenthood. I still use the techniques she taught me. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

I loved your classes!

Your support of my well being, while I was recovering from cancer, meant a great deal to me. Each week you were helping me through that very difficult time, supporting me, as I was finding my way. Generous in every way, your gentle knowledgeable manner and ever-present kindness created a unique space. Within that space we each were able to be utterly ourselves, but more at ease, and, ultimately, with greater access to our own quiet magnificence. I will not forget.

Amira has been really helpful in helping me understand the way my body moves. There’s always something new to work on, given the extent to which most of us have tension in our bodies. I have learned a lot of practical things to help me release tension that I find myself thinking about regularly. I would highly recommend Amira to anyone who’s interested in Alexander Technique or their own body habits more generally.

I have had a few lessons now and I really like Amira. I am still new to Alexander technique but Amira gave me a really good introduction. Even although it will take me a while to understand what effortless movement means and how that ever can become natural I know I am in really good hands. It feels very natural to work with Amira and I trust her. I can’t wait to change my hard working life into an efficient one!
