About Claire Stenhouse

I first became interested in the Alexander Technique when I was a young studio potter. A German teacher at a workshop I attended described the way the Alexander Technique had helped with his repetitive strain injuries (an occupational hazard for potters). When I suffered the same injuries, I consulted Alexander Technique teacher Grant Dillon. I was immediately impressed with the way the Alexander Technique enabled me to learn to reduce stress and heal my own body. The decision to train to be a teacher to further develop my own skills and help others was a natural progression in personal growth.

I graduated in 2003 from an Australian-supervised Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT)-certified teacher training school. Since then, I have run a practice in Auckland for the last 16 years. I am a member of Alexander Technique Teachers’ Society of New Zealand (ATTSNZ) and have also been an assistant teacher in Jann McMichael’s Alexander Technique teacher training school held in Auckland.

I have background experience in music (cello playing), studio pottery (14 years’ experience), tramping, swimming, yoga, Pilates and tai chi. I am also an assistant teacher in the Auckland Yang Style Tai Chi school (15 years’ experience).
