My name is Mark Vasak, and teaching people to learn the Alexander Technique to improve their health and performance is a real passion of mine.
For over 15 years I’ve explored the Alexander Technique and it's related ideas in life, the arts, and the sciences: From Alexander Technique training, to research in a neuroscience lab; from theatre programs to hospitals; from self-application and exploration, to teaching others to use the Alexander Technique to discover their best selves.
I've been in the frustrating position where no matter what you do the same limiting habits of pain and ways you carry yourself limit you; in fact, overcoming an injury brought me to the Alexander Technique in the first place.
I've also had the opportunity to gain the tools and guidance to move past this; and to help others do the same.
I care deeply that self motivated students who want to learn and apply the Alexander Technique to their own lives, are able to discover the most dynamic, poised, and powerful versions of themselves.
My aim is to continuously grow and develop through the Alexander Technique, and to help as many people as I can along the way. To teach, inspire, and be inspired; and I'd love to be a guide along your own journey.
