with Michael Gelb

The Alexander Technique is a simple, profoundly powerful method for developing grace, poise, and presence on stage and in everyday life. Renowned as the trade secret of world-class performers (it’s part of the curriculum and the Royal Academy of Drama and Music in England and the Juilliard School in the U.S.), the Alexander Technique is often called “the method for keeping your eye on the ball applied to life.” The Super Qi form is a creative synthesis of the most effective movements from qigong, the ancient Chinese system for cultivating life energy and internal power.
