"In the small spare schoolhouse in Folegandros, Judith Grodowitz guides us gently into the fullness of our own bodies. Old habits make way for new sensations; we allow ourselves to be inhabited by and to inhabit the Gods; Aphrodite, Artemis, Hermes, Dionysius come to life inside our bearing. The still white buildings of the unspoiled town, the stark sheer cliffs, and the softly caressing Mediterranean act as perfect teaching assistants in our release out of constriction into larger presence."
Joan Harvey, writer, Aspen, CO
"In the world of Homer’s Odyssey, where gods regularly visit mortals, transformation is an expected part of life. Athena might arrive as an old man and leave as a bird; with the wave of her wand, Circe turns men into swine. Judith Grodowitz’s workshop in Folegandros transported the Alexander Technique to the ancient landscapes and stories of a Greek Island. Inside a one-room schoolhouse in a white-washed town, Judith showed us how to invite change into our bodies and selves. Classes artfully integrated fundamentals of the Alexander Technique with movement, image, and literature. We journeyed forth—a little community of travelers—transformed by our experiences, the brilliant sun, and the buoyant Aegean."

"I had a completely life altering, affirming experience taking Judith Grodowitz's Inspiration in the Aegean workshop. The unique combination of Judith's abilities as a teacher, with her knowledge of Greek mythology and culture, in the amazing surrounding of the island of Folegandros was phenomenal for me. I had not expected to be so profoundly affected by Judith's workshop. My experience far transcended my preconceptions of what any learning opportunity in a new culture could be. Physically, emotionally, and historically, I had a very full sense that I had returned home."

"I was expecting a pleasant vacation with some sun, some fun, and tuning into my body more -- but what I got was a mind-blowing spiritual awakening....Since I've been back I've been seeing things (people, places & situations) through new eyes. They say that meditation helps one develop clarity and I feel like your class & Folegandros opened a door to that."
