Jo Roantree qualified in 2004 as a teaching member of PAAT. Since then she has taught the Alexander Technique both to individuals and groups, including for a number of years at the Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford. Jo practises mindfulness through the Alexander Technique and has attended courses in both MBCL and MBSR run by our colleague, Victoria Door. Jo has deep experience of caring for loved ones both before and after learning the Technique. Developing self- compassion through learning the Alexander Technique has made an enormous difference to her life.
Liz Tunnicliffe has been teaching the Alexander Technique for over 20 years, both with individuals and groups in a variety of settings. Alongside her Alexander teaching Liz has worked as a social worker with older adults in the community. Both of these passions came together when Liz undertook research to explore how older adults can apply Alexander Technique to maintain and improve balance and movement. Her roles, as Alexander teacher and social worker, have both involved Liz in working with individuals with care and commitment to support them as they explore their ability to care for themselves within their particular life situation. Liz is developing her mindfulness practice through the Alexander Technique, having attended courses run by our colleague, Victoria Door.
