"The tutorials are very easy to follow, encouraging, calming and effective in getting the viewer/student (me!) to follow instructions in a way that is memorable and setting up a self-led movement and response. Penelope's voice and speaking are very natural and calming, paced just right to follow without any tension.  Easy to listen to, no sense of urgency or didactic instruction." Ann Cooke, AT student.

Penelope’s story. I initially read zoology at Cambridge university. I took my first lessons in 1983 and qualified in 1989 from the North London Alexander School (Misha Magidov). After training, my use fell apart, as no-one had taught me to work on myself. This took me to Miss Goldie, who stripped away everything I had learnt, and rebuilt it as she saw the technique should be - a scary process! I worked with her for four years, and that began a thirty-year journey to understand the differences and power of Miss Goldie’s amazing work. It has taken me to many other teachers – including Erika Whittaker, John Hunter, and Jeando Masoero, and to many avenues of exploration and understanding – both scientific and alternative. From age seventeen, I also battled with another 30-year journey - with chronic fatigue syndrome. This is now sorted, but after it I needed to rebuild tone and strength, and increased calm and resilience, which this work has enabled. I have been teaching workshops on Miss Goldie’s work since the Oxford Congress in 2004, in UK, Ireland (including the Limerick Congress), Germany and America. My book: The Alexander technique. The twelve fundamentals of integrated movement was published by Handspring Publishing in March 2021. I live and work in County Clare in the West of Ireland with my husband, cat, two dogs, and a beautiful view. I am passionate to share this work that can bring us such renewed vigour, sense of youthful springiness and calm presence.
