In this podcast episode we speak to Kirstie Richardson, Alexander Technique and Movement Practitioner and a Dance Artist.

Kirstie explained how the Alexander Technique supported her through her career as a professional dancer and how she has evolved the practice to support others who are suffering with trauma as well as long term conditions and illnesses. We even got to try a short practice of the Technique itself.

In this episode we also discussed queer representation at The Met Gala and in boxing – so as ever a combination of professionalism and life side by side.

Kirstie trained at the East Anglia School of Alexander Technique in Chelmsford and sites her training and development with the following professionals:

Helen Poynor – Walk of life programme Based in Devon

Anna Halprin – died this year, based in California.

“Always enlightening and interesting! Good for the soul – friendly, inclusive, informative and caring, like a warm hug from a good friend. What more could you want from a podcast?”

“Fantastic podcast. Wonderful interesting subjects and very enjoyable to listen to.”

“Incredible!!! Spirituality plus real life, sprinkled with a huge dose of love. This podcast will speak to your soul. Raw, authentic and honest. Despite how it’s commercially depicted, yoga isn’t some contortionist act or sweating in a studio. Nor is it a group hippies chanting. Yoga is life. This podcast is an absolute blessing!!”
