Alexander Technique, Personalized Movement Training and Bodywork
ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE: In this work, we begin by observing ourselves in order to cultivate an increased awareness of how we do what we do. As we study ourselves performing ordinary activities such as standing, walking, sitting, breathing and speaking, we practice the art of undoing, of releasing unnecessary tension in the body and in our thinking. In this practice, we find a renewed source of energy, balance, ease and expression. Our curiosity opens the door to new possibilities.
PERSONALIZED MOVEMENT TRAINING: These one on one sessions are an hour in length. They include a movement and posture assessment, bodywork and a personalized movement sequence that you can do from home. A minimum of 3 sessions is recommended.
MOVEMENT-CENTERED BODYWORK: Clients need to wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move and be moved easily. We will work with you lying on you back and front on the table or floor. My techniques are based upon my years of working as Alexander Technique Teacher, Movement Educator, Fitness Trainer, Professional Dancer, and student of numerous movement and awareness practices. Sessions are 60 minutes in length which includes 5-10 minutes of movement before and after bodywork.
A curious and devoted student of the Alexander Technique since 1993, I received my Alexander Technique Teaching Certification from Chesapeake Bay Alexander Studies, under the guidance of Robin Gilmore and Marsha Paludan, and additional certification from Alexander Technique International in 2007. I began studying AT after numerous knee surgeries left me in a rather precarious position. As a dancer and an athlete, I was accustomed to pushing through pain and ignoring the messages my body was trying to tell me. Alexander Technique showed up at the moment that I was ready to listen and bring a new awareness to how I was moving. I have studied, and continue to study with numerous master teachers throughout the world. A professional dancer and choreographer since 1991, I teach, create and perform both locally and internationally. In June 2017, I was a guest teacher at the Barstow Summer Alexander Technique Workshop in Lincoln, Nebraska and look forward to returning in June 2018. I also served as a guest teacher at Inter-Mountain Alexander Training in Spokane, Washington. I have worked as an adjunct instructor and guest artist in the College of Music at University of Colorado Boulder; the School of Music, Theatre and Dance at Colorado State University; the Department of Theater and Dance at Emory University and the Department of Dance at University of Georgia. For the last 10 years, I have presented Dance and Alexander Technique workshops at Foro Performática in Puebla, Mexico. I have also offered workshops blending Dance and Alexander Technique at International conferences in Spain, Ireland, Switzerland and Canada. I am a founding member of Chicken Bank Collective, a collective of dance and video artists from México and the US. An avid outdoorswoman, certified Nordic ski instructor and personal trainer, I love having the Rocky Mountains as neighbors. I currently live with my family in Boulder, CO, where I am the owner and director of FloorSpaceStudio.

"I have learned to take advantage of every opportunity to study with Julie. Her expert observations and guidance have led to many of my personal breakthroughs and discoveries, and her teaching constantly inspires me to deepen my own physical awareness so that I may nurture and respect my whole self. She is an incredibly patient, sensitive, and understanding teacher, and her classes are invigorating retreats from the rest of my day that provide wonderful opportunity for both physical and mental self-exploration."
