Lyra Butler-Denman teaches private Alexander Technique lessons in Philadelphia, PA and Portland, OR along with workshops and group classes both in person and online. Lyra is a certified Alexander Technique Teacher and a faculty member at The Contemporary Alexander School as well as a Pilates and Gyrotonic teacher. She has been studying Alexander Work for over two decades, first as a young dancer finding efficiency, strength, and presence, and later after a spine injury that left her severely incapacitated. Alexander Technique not only restored her health, function, and dance career after the injury, but also allowed her to awaken to a stronger, smarter body and a deeper understanding of herself. Lyra works with the way our bodies wear our personal histories, past injuries, culture, social “norms”, and belief systems. She is interested in dismantling the internalized supremacies and inferiorities that live in our bodies. Lyra enjoys working with a diverse clientele in terms of identity, lived experience, activities, and areas of interest. Lyra is a heterosexual, white-identified, cis-gender woman with a history of chronic illness and uses the pronouns she/her/hers.
