Michelle is the resident instructor at the fantastic venue "Arcacia Park" (Langwarrin South) but also travels nationally and internationally to conduct clinics and workshops to help the rider to develop greater body awareness, suppleness, coordination, improved muscle tone and greater sensitivity in relation to the horse. It is a skill that may be used to improve position and as a result, a more fluent application of the aids to promote a harmonious connection with the horse.
The Alexander Technique is a skill that can be learned and applied in daily activities improving balance and coordination. An educational process which facilitates greater understanding of how thought and movement impact on performance.
