About me

I came into contact with the Alexander Technique in 2002 at the beginning of my art school studies. After an accident, I was looking for a gentle way to recover and support the healing process. My first AT lessons were super dope. I still vividly remember the indescribable feeling I walked out of them with.

Since then, the Alexander Technique has never left me. I was hooked, it became a part of my life and a home base. In all the places I lived, I looked for teachers and opportunities to further study the technique. I knew I wanted to do the three-year teacher training at some point, but other things always seemed to get in the way. After many years of taking lessons and regularly attending schools, meetings and workshops, I made the move for teacher training with Dan Armon. This change of sides, being in both the receiving and giving roles, was a pivotal moment for me in which much of what I had previously accumulated came together.

My work is informed by an extensive knowledge of AT and its various forms of expression and styles. I am a STAT-certified teacher and a member of the german Alexander Teacher Association ATVD.
My professional background is artistic and I work as an artist and painter (under a slightly different name). Many years of continuous Zen practice, experience teaching groups, regular retreats and exchanges with other teachers and modalities shape my spirit, understanding and style.

I look forward to meeting you,

Malte Holstad
