Lynn Martin

Adjunct Teacher

Lynn Martin has worked with The Carl Stough Institute of Breathing Coordination on special educational projects and was Associate Producer of The Stough Institute's documentary video, Breathing: The Source of Life. She was on the Board of Directors of The Stough Institute and has been actively working with and teaching Principles of Breathing Coordination for more than twenty years. Lynn teaches functional anatomy, Ideokinesis, dance movement, and therapeutic exercise and maintains a private practice in Ideokinesis in New York City. She has taught the Principles of Breathing Coordination and Ideokinesis at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, New York University, the Westchester Conservatory of Music, Brooklyn College, Judith Scott's The Works, and the McBurney YMCA. After assisting Irene Dowd in a study of the effects of Ideokinesis and exercise on maintaining mobility in the elderly, sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania, she organized an exercise class for retired members of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. A summa cum laude graduate of Fordham University with a B.A. degree in psychology, Lynn has also studied functional anatomy, Ideokinesis (theories of Dr. L. Sweigard) and dance with Irene Dowd and Dr. Drid Williams; and the function and structure of the vocal mechanism with Conrad L. Osborne. A deep interest in movement and voice led her to studies of Afro-Caribbean rhythms with Montego Joe and Pam Patrick, and Afro-Haitian Dance with Jean-Léon Destiné, Serge St. Juste, and Pat Hall. As a member of The St. Cecilia Chorus, she has performed much of the great choral-orchestral repertoire at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
