“It was an absolute pleasure to be on stage (after my session with you). I was able to let go of the stress of producing my show and switch into my true creative mind that is in my body. It was grounded. I felt more available and free to have fun! Constructive Rest and Alexander Technique have become a important part of my pre-performance ritual. Sharon’s ability to make a performer to feel totally present, vibrant, and grounded is truly beyond comparison.”
Ivana Shein, Actor and writer in LA
“A.T. enables people to get better and stay better longer. This is undoubtedly the best way to take care of the back and alleviate pain. By teaching people better body mechanics, it frequently enables patients to do away with pain.”
Jack Stern, M.D., Ph.D.
“The Alexander Technique has shown very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness, mental alertness, and resilience against outside pressure. Many types of under-performance and ailments, both mental and physical, can be alleviated, sometimes to a surprising extent, by teaching the body musculature to function differently.”
Dr. Nikolas Tinbergen
“Halfway though my first lesson with Sharon, the shooting pain down my arms that had plagued me for months disappeared! Weeks before, when my chiropractor told me that my pain was ‘postural’, I really panicked. All my life people have told me that my posture was bad, but no matter how hard I tried to ‘stand up straight’ I could never do it for more than a minute. Studying Alexander Technique with Sharon immediately gave me better use of my body and I have enjoyed better posture and many health benefits–including the complete disappearance of my chronic back pain and tension. And, to top it off, lessons with Sharon are supportive, pleasant and relaxing.”
“Recurring pain in my hip flexors and left shoulder originally ignited my curiosity in the Alexander Technique. After several years of searching for a good Alexander teacher, I feel very fortunate to have come upon someone as extraordinary and special as Sharon Jukabecy. Sharon has taught me to listen to my body and helped me to incorporate Alexander Technique into my daily life. We have reviewed all aspects of my life including how I sit in my car, how I carry my instrument, and even how I get out of bed in the morning! With her help the pain from my overuse has greatly diminished, and, as a bonus, I feel less stressed in my daily life. I have found her guidance invaluable, and I firmly believe that every human being can learn from The Alexander Technique to improve his/her daily life. Thank you Sharon for being such an inspirational teacher and amazing person!”
