Jeremy Cohn is a 1600-hour AmSAT(American Society for the Alexander Technique) certified Alexander Technique Teacher trained under Master Teacher Daria Okugawa at ATTIC. I am currently the Alexander Technique teacher at Green Shirt Studio on Chicago's north side. I also teach regularly at the Old Town School of Folk Music. I was first introduced to the Technique while earning my B.F.A in Acting from Boston University's College of Fine Arts benefiting from four years of instruction from world-renowned teacher Betsy Polatin, author of the bestselling book The Actor's Secret. I have been a teaching assistant for The Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and The School for Theatre Creators, an intensive physical theater training program on the north side of Chicago.
The Alexander Technique has had a profound impact on my life. Before I encountered it, I was completely disconnected from my body--I felt like it was something foreign to me, an awkward tool I used to get my mind around. The Alexander Technique has helped me be fully in touch with and in love with my body, and use it as an asset in everything I do instead of an obstacle.
