Glen Park worked in the professional theatre for ten years as an actor, scriptwriter and director before beginning her Alexander Training in 1980. This experience has contributed to her deep interest in the psychological and energetic patterns that interfere with good use.
Her first book, The Art of Changing, was published in 1989, in which, in addition to giving a thorough introduction to the Alexander Technique, it explored the way the technique can be applied to emotional and energetic patterns of use. She has developed a way of working with energy centres in the spine, the chakras of the Hindu and Yogic traditions, which complements her Alexander work. This has led to an understanding of the central importance of the spine and head, as our physical and emotional integrating core.
Glen has led many workshops for actors, musicians, Alexander teachers and trainees exploring these energy centres and finding ways to encourage integration and flow in the spine and head through awareness of psychological as well as physical interferences.
In her latest book, Touching the Soul (working title) she looks at the Alexander Technique and FM Alexander's discoveries from a spiritual perspective.
