Alexander Technique Teacher
Thai Yoga Massage Therapist
My name is Cécile Raynor. For about 30 years I have been teaching the Alexander Technique which is the best-kept secret of famous performers and Olympic artists. They swear by it because it allows them to perform at their highest potential with optimal safety.
Over the years, I have developed my own expression of the Alexander Technique the Body Intelligence Activation Process. In a nutshell, I teach people how to get out of their own way so as to empower and activate their whole-body intelligence!
I also became a Thai Yoga therapist and a Reiki practitioner to offer a full spectrum of value to everyone.
My practice consists of private and group sessions, both in-person and online format. One of my specialties is teaching yogis and yoga teachers how to practice in an integrated way so they avoid common strain and injuries. Then, I was led to publish The Wise Way to Yoga in 2018.
So, out of my life experience personally and professionally, I have been inspiring and guiding people away from unnecessary tension and pain so they can dance the joy of wholeness.
All I love to do, from being in nature, meditating, dancing, drawing, painting, listening to music, gardening, hiking kayaking, traveling, and more, has informed my way of being and working. which is why I love my work and love the people I work with.:)
“The work I do with Cécile is awesome. I have noticed a clear change in my practice and in the way students in my class respond to my instructions.“Chavi Bansal

“It is true that the tension patterns we have in our daily life come onto the yoga mat with us. Our job is to notice, become aware, and let go of these habits. Unfortunately, it is often the case that people perpetuate certain areas of tension instead of releasing. Your skill in bringing awareness to this, and working on finding the way to have the least tension in any posture is both appreciated and admirable.“Jovielle Gers

“As a yoga teacher, I have relished the “back to basics” movement awareness that Cecile brings through her expertise as an experienced Alexander technique instructor. This learning to “undo” our habituated patterns of movement and posture are invaluable to all yogis, and can only lead us towards greater fluidity of movement/spirit! I strongly recommend Cecile’s work.Ed Stern
