Picture of Niall Kelly, Alexander Technique teacher


Niall Kelly trained to be an Alexander Technique Teacher in Galway, Ireland with Richard Brennan and was a co-founder of The Irish Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (ISATT). He was president of ISATT for many years.

As well as running a successful practice as an Alexander Technique teacher, Niall also teaches the technique in the University of Limerick to students on the MA programme in Chant and Ritual Song, and on the BA in Voice and Dance, as well as to undergraduates in Mary Immaculate teacher training college in Limerick. He runs a regular workshop on Breath and Chant in the Benedictine monastery at Glenstal Abbey, Murroe, Co Limerick, and was guest presenter at the 2013 AmSAT annual conference in Chicago. He is also the director of the Alexander Technique Summer School which takes place in UL.

Niall is also an organisational change consultant and executive coach. He has worked in the area of organisational and personal change throughout his career. From his direct experience, he has seen how most organisations and individuals have to face wide-ranging changes to keep up with changing environments so they can readily adapt to emerging technologies in their fields. Too often he has seen how failure to do so early enough frequently results in the early demise of organisations and individuals.

Niall has designed and implemented many successful change initiatives aimed at restoring efficient organisational functioning and competitiveness. He sees the Alexander Technique as an extremely effective model for change in both individuals and organisations and uniquely incorporate the technique in his coaching work.
