I believe we all have this goal in common – to have a mind and body that functions with the optimal tone, balance and ease, giving us the greatest possibility to live well.
What I love about teaching people this transformative Technique is that it offers such great rewards towards the fulfilment of that goal. ~ H.G.

Helene has a background in music that began with her years of study with concert pianist Jascha Spivakowski. While raising her family, she moved to Texas, USA to manage an office for an international IT recruitment company with her husband.
Returning home to Melbourne, Australia, she established a small craft business with her daughter, and later, being a keen maker, she started Stitch 56, a boutique dressmaking supplies shop.
In her commitment to empowering people in having their relationships and their lives flourish, Helene has spent over 30 years participating in and leading personal development seminars, inspiring people to produce unprecedented results.
Although keen to take her playing to the next level, her plans ran amok when the discomfort in her arm that had begun as a mild, short-lived condition several years earlier suddenly returned, causing persistent debilitating pain.
In search of a holistic and non-invasive solution to her condition, Helene came across the Alexander Technique. After a course of lessons, she was impressed by the results she experienced, not just with her arm and piano playing, but with other surprising benefits – she was now able to go up and down stairs with ease, despite arthritis and meniscus tears in her knees. Also, the recurring neck and back pain that had plagued her for years was disappearing. Inspired by the remarkable difference the technique made to the quality of her life, Helene decided to completed her studies at the School for F.M. Alexander Studies in Fitzroy Nth, Victoria, Australia with director David Moore and assistant director Jenny Thirtle, qualifying for the Advanced Diploma certification to teach.
Based in Bentleigh East, Victoria, she offers online and in-person individual lessons, group classes and introductory workshops to the Alexander Technique.
