Harry Hobbs

Certified Alexander Technique Teacher

Harry has been learning and benefiting from the Alexander Technique for nearly a decade. In 2007, he was introduced to this work at Boston University’s School of Theatre under Betsy Polatin which gave him refreshing, new ways of thinking and inhabiting his body as well as unexpected and lasting benefits. In 2014, he became a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique after completing his 3-year, 1600-hour training at the Alexander Technique Center at Cambridge headed by director Tommy Thompson.

The Alexander Technique helps you coordinate yourself with more ease and integration by expanding your awareness of how you carry out simple movements and everyday tasks. Widely taught in conservatories for music, dance and theatre, the Alexander Technique is known for preventing injury, increasing efficiency and fostering present moment awareness. It allows you to alleviate pain and make more conscious choices about how much tension you use in all that you do. It serves as a wonderful method for change and growth for any individual. 

Treatment Philosophy

I see the Alexander Technique as a way of allowing people to discover more about themselves as they become more aware of their choices and how they respond to the demands of life. Each lesson is an exploration of who you are, and together we witness the uniqueness of you when we allow the body’s intelligence to come through in any movement and in any moment of a lesson.
