Instructor Highlight

Toshie Okabe | Mitzvah Technique

Toshie has been helping people achieve better posture for over 20 years. Born in Tokyo, Toshie moved to Canada to study the Mitzvah Technique with founder M. Cohen-Nehemia (a former teacher of the Alexander Technique). The Mitzvah Technique, which deals with postural and spinal difficulties on both a remedial and preventative basis, cured her of the chronic pain she had developed as a professional ballet dancer. As a certified practitioner, Toshie opened her downtown studio in 1992 and has been teaching at Hart House since 1996.
