Sara first started having lessons in the Alexander Technique in 2004.
As a professional dancer Sara had enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression that her studies in Vernacular Afro Cuban approaches had given her. Inspired by the driving rhythms she turned her attention to the music of the Latin cultures and re-awakened her childhood dream of being a violinist. Daring to pursue her studies, which had been dormant for many a years, she embarked upon the journey of learning to play the violin as an adult and soon enough was getting the gigs and establishing herself on the World Music scene.
Her success was, however, cut short by constant chronic neck and shoulder pain. Dismayed by the options she was given by the medical profession, which included surgery to the neck area and/or 6-monthly steroid injections, she sought other avenues for help before eventually discovering the Alexander Technique. The benefits of this were so evident right from the first session she had, that several years later she embarked upon the three year full time Training programme and graduated from The Westminster Alexander Technique Centre.
Sara has consciously re-connected with the ease and freedom of movement she once so naturally found as a dancer, and because of this can be of great assistance to anyone wishing to explore this in their life. Her understanding of how to consciously bring herself out of the pain cycle, combined with her experience from her professional career, has truly led her to be a very intuitive, caring and compassionate teacher. She is very comfortable working with a variety of different people and has experience of running group workshops for actors at The Actors Centre in the West End of London and for dancers at Roehampton University.
She currently teaches at The Westminster Alexander Centre and from her home in the quiet village of Plumpton in the Sussex countryside.
When not teaching Sara enjoys creating music, visiting places of historical interest, creative cooking and mindful gardening with her 3-year old son.
