About Linda Lack
Linda Lack, Ph.D., widely-respected educator, healer and international lecturer, has dedicated her life to the study of the human body and its relationship to breath and movement. In 1970, she began developing the technique The Thinking Body-The Feeling Mind® at her studio in Los Angeles. It is now practiced and taught throughout the United States as well as parts of Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
The Thinking Body-The Feeling Mind is a movement modality that is interdisciplinary and explorative while simultaneously science-based — a contemporary healing, maintenance and body sustainability technique. In addition to teaching, Lack gives presentations to diverse medical communities on longevity, somatic well-being, pain management and preventative care.
On faculty with Loyola Marymount’s Yoga Therapy RX program, Lack has been recognized and funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, The California Arts Council, Samadha International Healing Awards and the Los Angeles Area Dance Alliance Awards for Innovative Choreography. She has been honored with an L.A.C.E. Award for her life’s work, elucidating the role of spirituality in body movement.
Students have been accepted into Alvin Ailey II, Cirque du Soleil, Juilliard and Cal Arts and have received the Princess Grace Award. Lack also trains and certifies Yoga Teachers and Movement/Yoga Therapists.
Lack believes that the basic human impulses of movement and breath are profound pathways into healing, creativity and spirit. She “lives” her belief daily.
