Laurie Shawger, drawing inspiration from the innate human capacity for growth and resilience, helps people learn how to improve the way they function. The Alexander Technique provides a practical basis for addressing habits that strain the body with disadvantageous muscular effort. Among the potential benefits of learning this process are improvement in postural habits, balance, coordination, pain reduction and stress management.

Ms. Shawger trained to be an Alexander Technique teacher at Alexander Technique Milwaukee, a 3 year/1600 hour course certified by the American Society for the Alexander Technique.  She teaches individual lessons and group classes and has shared her enthusiasm for teaching the Alexander Technique in many different settings such as North Shore Congregational Church, Carroll University, The String Academy of Wisconsin, The National Classical Mandolin Conference, and the North Shore Parkinson’s Support Group at the JCC.

Susan was a Human Resources Specialist at the U.S. Postal Service for 18 years.  She provided stress management and relaxation classes for Postal events and meetings (1994-2010).  In the year 2000, Milwaukee Postal management asked her to design and roll out a wellness program for the Milwaukee and District offices.  As part of this program, Susan taught Feldenkrais lessons at Postmaster conventions and career conferences (2001-2010).  She also worked closely with the Safety Office and as a team member of the Ergonomic Risk Reduction Process (2001-2006), providing a Feldenkrais approach to improve the way city carriers, rural carriers, and clerks performed the functions of their jobs.  This entailed visiting many Post Offices to work one-on-one with injured employees and included service talks for the entire staff.
