THE POISE PROJECT is structured as an agile, nimble organization that can respond fluidly to arising opportunities. After each proposed initiative is rolled out, we will continue to nurture, strengthen and build on it moving forward, expanding on successful strategies and programs by training others how to replicate and adapt them to new regions and countries.
If you have expertise in any of the proposed fields, know of others with expertise who would like to advocate for AT, or know of funding sources that focus on any of these targeted populations, please contact us.
Help us achieve our mission:
"Maintaining poise and personal growth throughout all stages and challenges of life through the principles of Alexander technique (AT)"
