Richard Albert - A Biography

Photo of Richard Albert

Born and educated in Ottawa, Richard received a Bachelor of Arts from Carleton University in 1969 and then continued his education with extensive travel in Europe and the Middle East.

Designing and making furniture was his first career, learned and practised in England for over 20 years.

During this period, the inner journey of the spirit was his abiding passion, along with a keen interest in dressage, the art of equitation.

Richard's interest in The Alexander Technique began in 1980 in response to a need to improve his own health, energy level, poise and co-ordination. In 1987, he began the three year full-time Alexander Teacher Training course at an approved school near London, England.

Returning to Canada in 1993, Richard opened The Ottawa-Hull Centre for The Alexander Technique.

In addition to teaching The Alexander Technique to private clients in Ottawa-Hull, he has served as the "Assistant to the Director" on the Alexander Teacher Training Course, in Montréal, Quebec.

Richard is a member of The Academy of Naturopaths and Naturotherapists (ANN) based in Bromont near Montreal.
