Passionate about spreading the message of wholeness of mind and body and its benefits, Nadia works with individuals as diverse as teachers, engineers and children, helping them discover an easier way to exist in their bodies.
Engaged in the study and practice of the Alexander Technique for over a decade, Nadia is a member of the American Society for the Alexander Technique and has a private practice in the Alexander Technique in Zürich, Switzerland (previously with a private practice in New York, on faculty at the Riverside Initiative and a facilitator at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art). A certified instructor, Nadia completed a 1600-hour, three-year teacher training for the Alexander Technique. Nadia is also a summa cum laude graduate of New York University, with a Bachelor of Arts in Italian Literature and Language and a Bachelor of Music in Classical Flute Performance.
Her clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds, have diverse interests and make up a wide age range, from 9 years old to 70 and beyond. Nadia is experienced in teaching Alexander Technique to clients with pain, clients who require high performance in the body-mind (classical and jazz musicians, speakers, or leaders in business) and clients who seek wellness and less stress and strain in body and mind. She also has taught many children and young people the Alexander Technique as a way to manage worry, release the startle pattern and find ease instead of strain while studying, speaking and playing.
Committed to the mindfulness practice of the Alexander Technique, Nadia uses it in her daily life, in addition to applying it to her interests of classical music performance, Argentine tango social dance, learning and speaking foreign languages and swimming.
