I listen to your Body Learning podcast often more that once a day. I’m so inspired by the way you have brought the individualized work of so many teachers into an easily accessible format for the benefit of countless people. I have learned so much from listening in on these conversations. I have yet to hear a podcast of yours that didn’t interest me. I admire the balance between your questions of your guests and your reflections of what they are saying, filtered through and also reflecting your own thoughts and experience.
There’s some combination of a depth of understanding, and a desire to share with your guest and the listener a truly careful examination of the usefulness and fascinatingly elusive nature of Alexander’s work.
I’m grateful for being a student of it. I never thought I’d find a practice so endlessly challenging and rewarding. Your work helps me and enriches my practice, and helps me feel part of a community of like-minded people. THANK YOU!! - Eric Feinstein, Enfield, New York
Robert's questions gently steered me in exactly the right directions, and left me with a satisfying sense of having spoken to the essentials without unnecessary sidetracking. - Erik Bendix, Teacher of the Alexander Technique, Ashville, North Carolina
These podcasts are a really valuable resource for the Alexander community of teachers and students to help them learn more about the application of the Technique to particular activities or conditions, and for those who would like to find out more before committing themselves to lessons. I often recommend them to students who have an interest in a particular field, and also to pass on to others they know who might benefit from the Technique. - Sandra Riddell, Teacher of the Alexander Technique, Edinburgh, Scotland

It was more like a conversation between friends than being on stage without a script. - Marta Curbelo, Teacher of the Alexander Technique in New York City, Norwalk, CT and Santa Fe, NM.
I just wanted to thank you (again!) for your Body Learning podcasts!

The cost of hosting a podcast is much higher than for an ordinary website, and so I ask that you spend a few minutes looking over the material at my Feedback and Support page where you can find several ways to help support the podcast, as well as my other Alexander Technique websites, at no cost to you!
Enjoy the podcasts, and please send me your comments and suggestions.
