Myriam Waters teaches the Ham House Stables staff the Alexander Technique
Myriam graduated in 2004 and trained with Walter Carrington, one of the greatest Alexander Technique masters who trained with Alexander himself for several years.
“My full training course was a very happy and rich learning experience enlightened by the riding lessons I had with Minette Rice Edwards.
With Minette I discussed the different aspects of balance and good use and the constant relevance of the technique to horse riding. I had the best of both worlds: at college it was ‘work in hand’ on me by marvelous teachers including Walter. With Minette it was ‘work on the horse’ guided by somebody who has an extraordinary understanding of what is to be in balance and who is more Alexander than any one of us! “
