Laura Kress is an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher with a practice in Los Angeles.
M.AmSAT Founder of designed for poise
Hi! My name is Laura and I'm an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher. I completed my training at Alexander Training Institute of Los Angeles. I currently teach for UCLA as well as maintain a private practice in Santa Monica and Los Angeles.
I have a professional background in classical music and graphic design, specializing in the specific needs of instrumentalists. I discovered the technique while studying Viola Performance at New York University. The technique helped me undo years of chronic back pain and helped me find ease in many other areas of my life.
As a teacher I would like to change the way we think about and interact with our bodies on a daily basis. Designed for poise is a platform to discover how we can reach higher potential in anything we do by starting with our natural design for freedom, mobility, creativity, and poise.
AmSAT (American Society for the Alexander Technique) is the largest professional organization of teachers of the Alexander Technique in the United States. AmSAT maintains the nation's highest standards for teacher training, certification and membership, requiring 1,600 hours of training over a minimum of 3 years at an accredited school.
