Presenter Bio: William Conable enjoys worldwide renown as a teacher of the Alexander Technique. He studied with Marjorie L. Barstow, the first graduate of F. M. Alexander’s first teacher training course, beginning in the summer of 1962. During graduate school he studied with Frank Pierce Jones, who undertook the first scientific research into Alexander’s discoveries at Tufts University. In 1965 Professor Conable also studied at Walter Carrington’s Alexander teacher training school in London. Beginning in 1971, he continued his study with Marjorie Barstow, which continued steadily for the next fifteen years. He is her senior teaching student. In the mid-1970′s, he began developing the concept of Body-mapping, which is widely recognized as a major contribution to the theory and pedagogy of the Alexander Technique.
In addition to his work as an Alexander teacher, Conable is an active professional cellist and conductor. He was Principal Cellist of the Columbus Symphony for 10 years, and professor of cello at the Ohio State University for 36. In recent years, he has studied energy healing with James Kepner, Carol DeSanto, Rosalyn Bruyere, and Shelby Hammitt. He is a certified Advanced Practitioner of Nervous System Energy Work, a new discipline being developed by Kepner and DeSanto. He is particularly interested in the relationship between this work and the Alexander Technique.
