Michaela Wohlgemuth qualified in 1999 as an Alexander Technique Teacher after a three- year full-time training at the ATI-Los Angeles in California, USA and was certified by the American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSTAT). She has over 18 years continuous full-time teaching experience, is a member of STAT and ISATT and is fully insured.
From 2006 till 2018 she was the Assistant-Director of the Alexander Technique Training Centre based in Galway. In 2016 she became an Alexander Technique tutor at Trinity’s ‘The Lir’ Academy of Dramatic Art in Dublin; that is also where she has her private practice.
She teaches people in different walks of life to solving harmful habits, eliminate extra effort, tension and strain and to find a sense of ease and freedom in movement – as a foundation for self-care and to avoid injury, in their work and in their lives.
Michaela is also working with people involved in physical performance (actors, dancers, musicians…). She is teaching her students to cultivate the connection between performing and the Alexander Technique.
“I hope to stimulate you to explore the power of the Alexander Technique through informing, education and providing experiences about it and that will have a positive and sustainable impact on your everyday life.”
Her work is always focused on giving her students independence and personal success.
“I first discovered the Alexander Technique after several years of having pain in my right hip, which started after I spent working a few years as a nurse. Like many people I had tried osteopathy and other modalities, while it gave short term relief, it didn’t solve the problem. Someone suggested the Alexander Technique might be helpful so I started having lessons.
The Alexander Technique resolved my hip pain but, unexpectedly, I found that it did much more than that. I began to realise that I had spent years existing mostly in my head. The Alexander Technique made me aware of this but also reintroduced me to my whole self. Initially, I was aware of a lot of tension but, through learning to release that tension, I found an increasing ease in life and a greater ability to deal with life’s demands. In addition I really enjoyed the Alexander Technique; I enjoyed learning it and practising it. I also liked that I learned to manage the discomfort myself rather than having to keep visiting a professional to resolve things for me.”
