Linda Carmichael, B.A., S.T.A.T.
Linda Carmichael has been teaching The Alexander Technique for over twenty-five years. As a young drama student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, she grew to appreciate the transitional power of the Alexander Technique in her work as an artist. Applying the technique in performance created a more powerful control of her body, breath and vocal mechanism and gave her a poise she never dreamed was possible. Linda went on to study Alexander Technique at the Alexander Technique Training center in Totnes, Devon in England, a S.T.A.T. accredited three year course.
Linda has worked extensively with people from all walks of life. She has helped people reduce pain, recover from injury, improve their performance skills and become stress free public speakers and presenters.
Linda has conducted workshops at Berklee College of Music, The ART Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University, Lesley University Dance Therapy program, she has worked with members of The Harvard Radcliffe Chorus and is the Alexander Teacher for Actors Shakespeare Project, one of the leading theater companies in the Boston area.
Linda has a private practice in Davis Square Somerville and lives with her husband and two Scottish terriers in Arlington MA. Linda is currently developing a blog called, On Being Female, which will explore in video, audio and creative writing, the artistic, health, philosophical and political life of women through the ages and the present day.
