A professional choral musician and certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, Paul Genyk-Berezowsky teaches other musicians and people of all walks of life how to find greater ease and coordination in their movement and the activities of their lives. Whether on stage, in the practice room, or in the teaching studio, Paul applies the Alexander Technique’s structured approach to how we direct our attention, thinking, and movement, as well as to how we learn new habits.
Paul has led workshops on the Alexander Technique for choirs and schools in the Greater Toronto Area including the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, Amadeus Choir, University of Toronto, and Wilfred Laurier University. Paul completed the 1200-hour Alexander Technique Teacher Training with Susan Sinclair in Toronto, as well as studies with senior teachers internationally, including Sakiko Ishitsubo, Martha Hansen Fertman, Meade Andrews, Kathryn Armour, and Tommy Thompson.
Students often remark that Paul has a kind and compassionate approach to teaching – Paul believes that fostering a quality of awareness that is gentle towards ourselves is integral to making positive, lasting changes in how we think, move, and allow ourselves to be in the world.
