About Lauri Elizabeth
I trained at the Oregon Center for the Alexander Technique and am certified by the American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT), the largest professional organization for Alexander Technique teachers in the United States. It maintains the nation's highest standards for teacher training, certification, and membership.
I discovered the Alexander Technique while earning a music degree at Northwestern University. My study of the technique has helped me with performance anxiety, avoiding injury, and maintaining calm in the face of stress. It has been a captivating exploration of human functioning, especially as I learn new skills, like acrobatics and biking in the city. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to teach the Alexander Technique, where I get to witness my studentsí excitement at being able to achieve something that was unattainable before (everything from an anxiety-free performance to being able to run again after 20 years).
I am currently teaching private students in SE Portland on some weekdays and Saturday afternoons. Contact me for more information about my current teaching schedule. I am also an Adjuct Faculty member in the Music Department at Marylhurst University, teaching the Alexander Technique to musicians.
