Listen to Interview with Ronit about
Alexander Technique and Dogs
"I just finished listening to your interview and I think it's brilliant. You spoke so beautifully, so clear, so knowledgeable, so relaxed." Niema A., UK
Ronit uses her skills with The Alexander Technique to work with animals. She influences the noisy nervous system of the animal with her quieter nervous system. Animals respond particularly well as they do not think, but simply respond.
Ronit has helped nervous and scared animals to calm down and stiff elderly animals in pain, especially hip pain, to move more freely, looking and acting younger.
"Initially I came to be able to play piano without my shoulders and arms hurting. But it's not just for my piano playing, it's for my whole well-being!"
Hiroko N., Tokyo
The Alexander Technique Applied to Animals
"My dog Lilly had a pretty dramatic change after your work with her. Her tail usually hangs tight to her body then curves to her left like a letter "J".
Today is the first time I ever remember her moving with her tail up off her body and in alignment with spine out to the tip, swinging naturally side to side. I believe we are on the right track.
Thank you Ronit!" Maggie, La Conchita, CA
