About Paivikki Nykter
Päivikki has a Diploma in violin performance from the Sibelius-Academy in Helsinki, Finland. She started taking Alexander Technique lessons to further improve her playing, especially while playing the viola. Päivikki was intrigued about the ease and poise she gained with the Technique. After 14 years of lessons she entered Alice Olsher's Carrington style training course in San Diego, California, qualifying in 2010.She now enjoys working especially with musicians in her private studio in La Jolla, California, as well as in her native Finland, helping her students maximize their performance skills and stay injury free during their studying years and professional careers by being more aware of their psycho-physical functioning and guiding them with practical application of the Technique.
