My experience with The Alexander Technique began in 1985. She was visiting Japan a couple of times a year,and teaching for several months at a time. I enjoyed my lessons very much and felt that I was making good progress. I was learning how to use my body correctly, and felt that it was beneficial in all aspects of my life.
When Ms. Cox left Japan for the last time, after about 6 years of regular visits, I was able to continue studying sporadically, with visiting teachers, for a few years longer. But sadly, for the last ten years or so, I was unable to find a teacher.
This year I was very lucky to meet Ms. Fumie Hosoi and resume my study of The Alexander Technique. I am happy to say that once again I feel that I have found a wonderful teacher.
Fumie’s lessons are expertly executed, and I always leave her feeling like I have accomplished proper alignment. I am always encouraged to continue because I can see progress.
Fumie’s teaching technique is both fluid and intuitive. She is able to quickly sense where the problems are in my alignment and quickly correct them. I also feel that with each lesson I am remembering more and more of the things I learned so long ago about the Technique and
how to incorporate these lessons into my daily life. It is easier for me to remind myself how to move and sit and stand with more thoughtfulness, and freedom.
I can fully recommend Fumie as an excellent teacher of The Alexander Technique, and I look forward to studying with her for as long as possible.
