“The Alexander Technique helped me find my voice. Now it allows me to put my voice out there and help others through teaching.”

-Anita Mischuk

Anita Mischuk is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and owner of ATMW. She was inspired to learn the technique after a personal experience.

After a few voice lessons, Anita realized she had tension in her body that came from habits she wasn’t aware of. As a result, she started studying the Alexander Technique. Through learning AT, her experience of singing transformed.

This change rippled from her music studies into all aspects of her life. It was this monumental shift that drew her to becoming a teacher of the Alexander Technique.

Anita grew up in Germany. She has three masters degrees from the University of Cologne — in French, History, and Education. She has been a passionate teacher for most of her career. 

After four years of training to complete her course with the German branch of the Alexander Alliance International and with teachers from the US, Germany, Japan, France and Spain, Anita moved to the United States in 2017. She now teaches the Alexander Technique in Iowa City and surrounding communities. Her goal in Iowa is to teach people to gain more ease and freedom in both professional and everyday life.

Anita’s passions include singing and playing the recorder. She also enjoys kayaking with Iowa City Open Water Swimmers, taking Nia dance classes, and going on long walks with her husband and their two dogs. Her current studies are dedicated to holistic health. Anita is also a hypnotherapist practitioner.

Anita is an enthusiastic and patient teacher of the Alexander Technique. The nobility of her heart and her empathy have helped me experience a new balance in my body and in my being: the body and soul are in constant communication. I feel more grounded, with greater breadth, which adds fullness and warmth to my vocal production. It is my sincere hope that many, many people become acquainted with - and benefit from - Anita's valuable work.
