Allyna Steinberg, MPH, MAmSAT has been dancing salsa for nearly as long as she’s been studying the Alexander Technique. She took her first salsa lessons in Spanish in Mexico in 2003. She continued her salsa classes in NYC with (in approx. chronological order): Talia Castro-Pozo, Jules Helm, Lisa Allen, Carlos Konig, Almyra Ayos (Casa de la Salsa), Anya Fuchs (Dancing with the Stars), Joe Burgos (Piel Canela). Allyna has dabbled in Argentine Tango, Bachata, Blues, Hustle, and Swing. Allyna co-founded the Alexander Technique Diversity Coalition (http://www.facebook.com/ATDiversity/) in 2017 with a racially-diverse group of teachers aiming to create spaces for critical dialogue and action. This interest grew from Allyna’s career in public health; she has over 20 years of experience supporting communities, youth and families to improve their health. Allyna has been studying the Alexander Technique since 2001 when it was recommended by an orthopedist from Mount Sinai Medical Center. Allyna completed her teacher training at the Balance Arts Center in 2015. Allyna teaches via the NYC Health Department’s Worksite Wellness program, and privately online and in Manhattan and the Hudson Valley, New York. Learn more at www.AlexanderTechniqueForLiving.com.
