About Mark

Mark teaches the Alexander Technique on faculty in the Capilano University Theatre program, and runs a private teaching practice where he helps people overcome health and performance challenges using the Alexander Technique.

He first discovered the Alexander Technique over 15 years ago when he used it to overcome a chronic pain injury. Since then, a passion for learning and sharing the Alexander Technique with others has taken him on a long journey through the sciences, arts and performance, and healthcare.

He’s a certified Alexander Technique teacher (Alexander Technique Canada), and has worked in hospitals and rehabilitation clinics throughout Vancouver. He has a Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT, UBC), a bachelor of music (B.Mus), and has worked on research in the neurosciences studying how the brain learns movement (SFU). In addition, he represented the Alexander Technique teachers across Canada from 2015-18 at both a national and international level.

Having overcome a personal injury through the Alexander Technique, I care deeply that people who want to learn and apply the Alexander Technique to better their lives are able to discover the most dynamic, poised, and powerful versions of themselves. - Mark
