Katherine Mitchell has taught the Alexander Technique for almost 25 years, working both in private practice and as adjunct faculty at the Conservatory for Theatre Arts at Webster University and at Washington University in St. Louis. Her students use AT to glean new ways to address attention, effort, coordination, stress, chronic pain and creativity. They come from all walks of life, including circus performers and opera singers, artisans and accountants.
Excited about interdisciplinary teaching and learning, Katherine helped develop the Writing as a Physical Act workshop at the Balance Arts Center in NYC and has developed a Movement for Writers Course for Washington University in St. Louis.
For her Bachelor’s degree from University of Memphis, she used literary and visual media to develop choreography. Katherine has given Argentine Tango/Alexander Technique workshops in various venues from Galway to Las Vegas to promote listening and improvisation.
Katherine holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Her poetry appears in the 2013 spring and summer issues of 2River View.
She received her Alexander Technique certification from Alexander Technique - Urbana, directed by Joan and Alex Murray.
