“What a wonderful fun resource! There is something here for everyone from the general public to serious students of the Alexander Technique. I have shared the Alexander Talk website with all of my students.”
- Lauren Hill, Alexander Technique Teacher, St. Paul, MN

"These conversations are a wonderful gift. I shared a couple of them with my husband, and after years of unsuccessful nudging on my part, he signed up for an Alexander Technique class. And he loves it!"
- Susan White, Public School Administrator, New York City

"I enjoyed listening to these conversations very much. I am recommending Alexander Talk to my students, particularly to those who are not readers. It provides a fun and accessible way to learn more about the Technique."
- Imogen Ragone, Alexander Technique Teacher, Wilmington, DE
