DANIEL SINGER, ACAT '81

ACAT/Daniel Singer

ACAT SENIOR FACULTY (1988–present)

“I treasure the fact that each ACAT trainee I teach and touch learns differently.  My own journey has been informed by a broad range of interests, including consciousness, contemplative studies, painting, healing, writing, and Argentine Tango. Endeavoring to make what is profound in the Alexander Technique work easily accessible, I have a passion for helping trainees and post-graduates to become clear-headed, competent, confident and creative teachers of the Alexander Technique.”
