About Giora

Certified at 16 Ashley place by P.J. Macdonald in 1967, Giora went on to practice in England, Germany, Israel and the United States where, in 1974, he co-founded the first teacher-training course in America, of what are now the International Standards. In the mid-80's he also established training-couses in Frieburg and Heidelberg (Germany), respectively. Since then he continues to offer yearly refresher-courses for teachers throughout Europe.

In recent years Giora has been serving AmSAT(USA) as head of Nominating Committee in addition to functioning as evaluator for GLAT (Germany) and a consultant to a number of training courses.

His experience includes working with children in educational settings, in pain-clinics, with musicians, and performing artists.

His focus since 1983 is The Alexander Educational Center. Located in Berkeley, California, it is a centre for training teachers, guest-teachers' workshops and post-graduate training for teachers of various backgrounds. Email:

Giora has been instrumental in helping ISATT seek worldwide affiliation with other Alexander societies.

While being active internationally in making sure that training-standards continue to be as high as possible, he strongly believes in emphasising our common ground and in working harmoniously.
