Here are comments from our surveys:

This workshop was a wonderful experience. Mary is gentle and caring and shows a lot of concern for each person. I learned very helpful information about my head and spine and how they are interrelated. Thank you so much! -Karen

‘Mary exudes the Alexander Technique in all she does. Her ease of movement in teaching and working with each student moves the student to continue the technique. The Alexander Technique is a best-kept secret and needs to be shared. Mary is an incredible teacher with 30+years of experience and is a gift to watch and be taught by.’

‘Through my Alexander technique lessons with Mary, I have learned about the way my body works in a new and radically different way. Mary is a very effective teacher and she employs a very gentle method of working with students which is totally non-invasive but very effective and productive. After a lesson or workshop with Mary, my body is pain-and tension-free and I can move freely and easily, and also take the awareness which I have learned and apply it to all aspects of my professional and personal life.’-Joanna Mell, Harpist, and Clinical Therapeutic Harpist

‘My first introduction to The Alexander Technique was through Mary McCann and I am so grateful for it! Through her gentle coaxing and “inviting” I found myself becoming increasingly aware of the subtlest adjustments in my body, and with even greater care, was able to control them. McCann nurtured me every step of the way, even if I felt as if I’d fallen back a little. I have applied the techniques she helped me to develop in both my acting and my everyday life. Sometimes, work relating to body is difficult; we each have our physical habits and insecurities, but McCann is so adept at creating an easy, kind environment that I felt perpetually safe to explore freely. Whether your seeking guidance in the physicality of characters, or the achievement of grace through physical understanding, I highly recommend Mary McCann as a successful teacher.’-J.G.

The Transform Tension into Useful Energy Workshop was both relaxing and invigorating. Mary and Zora are friendly, amazing women who helped make me a better person, in just a few hours.’

One of the most surprising things I learned is that I didn’t have to work so hard.’ -Meghan Malloy

‘Mary McCann has a rare and magical gift.’ -Anne K. Holmes, Education Director, Wilma Theater
