About the Author
Judith Leibowitz was born in Connecticut, was raised and went to school in New York City and received a BA from Brooklyn College. At 15 she had polio, which left most of her leg and hip muscles with minimum functionality. This enduring weakness led her to the Alexander Technique, first as a student, and later, out of necessity, as a teacher. F. Mathias Alexander, Alma Frank, and Lulie Westfeldt were her teachers. In 1964 along with four other teachers, she established the American Center for the Alexander Technique, Inc. (ACAT) a not-for-profit organization to train and certify Alexander teachers and to inform the public about the Technique (www.alextech.org.) From 1964 1990 she was actively involved, as Training Director, Board Member and/or Senior Faculty. Judy joined The Juilliard faculty in the new drama division at the invitation of John Houseman in 1968. She taught the Alexander Technique as a required course for all The Juilliard drama stu-dents. Judy s students included the actors Kevin Kline, Patti LaPone, Robin Williams, and Kelly McGillis. The American Conservatory Theatre, Arena Stage, Kristin Linkletter Voice program at the Guthrie Theatre and Temple University are among the institutions where she introduced and taught the Alexander Technique.

“As a teacher, you pick up the moment before your brain has said, ‘Oh this is the moment.’”
“We are dealing not with the goal but the in-betweens that help us reach our goal.”
The price for this book on Amazon is inexplicably obscene. The book is in print and is available for a mere $26 plus shipping from the bookstore of AmSAT (the American Society for the Alexander Technique). Highly recommended.
