Jeremy Cohn is a 1600-hour AmSAT certified Alexander Technique Teacher trained at ATTIC. He works with performing artists, athletes, public speakers, executives, and anyone who wants to forge a better connection between their mind and body. Besides maintaining a private studio of clients in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, he has taught group classes and workshops at The Old Town School of Folk Music, Green Shirt Studio, The Chicago Vocal Arts Consortium, and the Illinois chapter of the National Association of String Teachers among others. He was first introduced to the Technique while earning a 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.  

"My teaching philosophy is that this work is not about imposing a new way of moving on the body, but releasing artificialities that have already been imposed on it and thereby discovering more connection, ease, and presence. With this presence, extraordinary changes can occur in our lives."  



Interview on Parkbench.


Jeremy is a compassionate, thorough, passionate and determined teacher and guide. My work as an actor has improved considerably since my exposure to Jeremy and to the Alexander Technique. He meets you where you are and helps you to shine. I cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone seeking greater mobility, expression, and health.
— Rebecca Joy Fletcher (Actor, Playwright, Jewish educator)
Alexander technique is one of the many ways to increase mindfulness of the body and breathing, which is essential for musicians (such as myself). After working with Jeremy, I had a fresh perspective to incorporate into my practice routine, which improved my posture, breathing, and overall performance.
— Cally Laughlin (Professional Clarinetist, Clarinet Teacher, and Member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and Lake Effect Clarinet Quartet))
The training I was able to do with Jeremy in the Alexander Technique has inspired new confidence, ease, and creativity in my acting. [...] Whether you want to ignite a deeper sense of mind-body connection or refine your philosophy on storytelling, Jeremy’s classes are transformational and will help you expand your sense of self. I think I even grew taller!
— Harsh J. Gagoomal (Theatre Artist)
