If you’re not in the Portland area and would like to find a certified teacher near you, the American Society for the Alexander Technique’s website offers teacher listings by name or by geographic area.
Paige teaches group workshops for actors and musicians of all ages. She has taught at the University of Oregon, Mt. Hood Community College, Portland Center Stage, and many others.
In addition to its physiologic and musculoskeletal benefits, the Alexander Technique is extremely helpful in relieving the psychological states of depression and anxiety that so often accompany chronic pain and disease.
Working with Paige in the Alexander technique has changed so much of what I do as a performer and a person. I have a much wider and relaxed range with my physical self, which translates to a more dynamic and efficient use of my physicality and vocals in performance.
I’ve been studying the Alexander Technique with Paige McKinney for over a year and half and without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who might be curious to find out more about the Technique.
