About David Liebendorfer
I have always been an athletic enthusiast while especially enjoying running, biking and swimming. An interest in the relationship between the physical and the psychological has motivated my personal and professional pursuits. In my career as a massage therapist I have had extensive experience helping people gain and maintain optimal health, as well as helping those recovering from physical injury.
My interest in the Alexander Technique began 20 years ago when I was recovering from a sports injury. I was attracted to the Technique because it promotes taking personal responsibility for one’s well-being and for the idea that my thinking could affect how I dealt with my recovery as well as help change how I used and carried myself. Later, as a massage therapist, I was able to recover from chronic and debilitating tendinitis with the aid of the Alexander Technique. My recovery from pain and impaired flexibility with the help of the Technique has given me a passion for its principles and effectiveness.
I am certified by the American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT) and a graduate of The Art of Learning Center, a three-year 1600 hour Alexander Technique teacher training course in Berkeley, California. With every student I take a collaborative approach, employing a light-hearted problem-solving attitude, assisting them to attain their goals along with improved coordination, vitality and ease of movement. I am perpetually inspired by the depth to which the Alexander Technique permeates and enriches all aspects of daily life.
