Since opening my teaching studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in July, I have been thrilled to be able to devote so much of myself to teaching private lessons in the Alexander Technique. If you've come for a lesson, a class, or to just to visit, you know that the studio is a calm and lovely space, a truly uplifting environment. -- Rebecca Brooks
