I first met Robert at an Equestrian clinic and decided to sign up for online coaching to further improve my riding position. The sessions were extremely helpful for my riding but I also got a benefit I was not expecting. After implementing what Robert has taught me, everything I do is easier and I have less stiffness and more energy. I was skeptical about learning physical skills online but Robert’s teaching is very effective and easy to follow. I think anyone can benefit from Robert’s expertise and teaching of the Alexander technique. – Joann Porter MD, Omaha, Nebraska
