My name is Jo Ann Widner and I am a teacher of the Alexander Technique and Tai Chi. I trained at the Alexander Technique Training Centre in Charlottesville, Virginia, graduating in 2007. I opened my Alexander practice that same year and have been teaching the Alexander Technique ever since.

My practice is varied, but I work mainly with people who are seeking relief from pain; people wishing to improve their posture and balance; or people who are looking for a way to manage stress and create a sense of well-being in their daily lives. As a life-long horse enthusiast, I also work with equestrians.

I was first introduced to Tai Chi during my Alexander training in Charlottesville. I have since trained with Martin Kidder and Dr. Paul Lam, and am certified to teach Tai Chi through both the Tai Chi for Health Community and the Arthritis Foundation. I teach classes locally and often include principles of Tai Chi in my Alexander practice.

Prior to my Alexander training, I worked in health care for many years. I graduated from Indiana University School of Nursing in 1984, and obtained at Masters of Science from the University of Louisville in 1994, where I studied Exercise Physiology.
