To improve health and enhance one's fitness level, Pilates, The Alexander Technique and Stretch Therapy are the perfect combination to achieve a relaxed, self-aware, strong and flexible body which can improve your quality of life, performance at work or sports and also daily functional activities.
For acting, I find it most effective to incorporate body and voice techniques to assist both the actor and the general public with developing more confidence and stage presence whether it is for a professional performance, interview preparation, delivering presentations in business or developing better communication and confidence skills in order to live a more happy and fulfilled life.

Lynn worked with me to help me prepare for a drama bursary to my next school. We started off by choosing an audition speech, which Lynn helped me with and we came to the right decision. Lynn then taught me some relaxation techniques which I used to help calm my nerves. Lynn also worked with body language, facial expressions and movement, which made the piece come more naturally and made it more effective. By the end of our sessions, I was ready and I managed to get the bursary, it was a success.
I contacted Lynn due to important auditions. She is extremely versatile. We worked on monologues, duologues, voice and text analysis. To help with anxiety, we also used the Alexander technique. Lynn is an expert and the sessions drastically changed my approach to the character, my movement made sense again and my anxiety disappeared! She is a perfectionist and pointed out all my diction issues. I strongly recommend Lynn as a mentor for anyone who feels acting will be part of their future job.
