A certified teacher of the Alexander Technique (AT) since 1990, she has taught renowned musicians, writers, theater groups, medical professionals, and business leaders how to gain greater poise, balance, and freedom in their work and in their lives. Sandra is also the founder of Orchestral Maneuvers (OM). OM offers creative strategies to groups and individuals, musicians and non-musicians alike. She has worked with Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft (now Guitar Circles of North America, South America and Europe) from 1988-1990 and from 2000-present. In July, 2010 Sandra graduated from Jessica Wolf’s Art of Breathing training and holds a certificate in teaching breathing coordination.
