karad[a]ctive is a made up word with KARADA and ACTIVE. KARADA means body in Japanese and ACTIVE as the word you know. That's because our mission is to re-activate your/our body!!

As we grow, our body develop various habits and unfortunately  those are mostly bad ones. It is important to realize what's happening to your inactive body parts so can address those issues. 

You can touch the surface of what AT is about with workshops, and develop further with 1on1 lessons where teachers help you realize bad habits and send direction to activate your KARADA. 

Akiko Tsuchiya

Berklee College of Music alumna (Voice principal). A class she took during her final year at Berklee "Vocal Pedagogy" got her interested in in-depth understanding of the use of her vocal chord. Soon realized that it must come from the proper use of total body but not just by parts, so she studied under Ruth Kilroy of Alexander Technique Training Center and Rivka Cohen, then became AmSAT certified teacher of Alexander Technique. She currently resides in Greater Boston(MA) area and host workshops in various topics as well as private instructions.
