Theodore (Ted) Dimon is the founder and director of The Dimon Institute in New York and adjunct professor at Columbia University Teachers College. He received both master's and doctorate degrees in education from Harvard University. Dimon's work focuses on the study of the human being as an ordered and orderly system and on the understanding of this system as the basis on which to advance knowledge in key areas of human development. His holistic approach covers subjects as diverse as neuroscience, anatomy, evolution, physiology, psychology, philosophy, and mindfulness, and provides new foundational educational principles applicable in the fields of health, learning, and child development.

At the Institute, Dimon has developed a three-year professional training in the theory and practice of psychophysical education; he also teaches programs to educators and individuals interested in integrating psychophysical education into classroom teaching and into mindfulness study. Dimon's courses at Teachers College focus on awareness and principles of mind/body unity and their application to education and health; students from Columbia can also participate in courses at the Dimon Institute as part of a joint Masters degree program.

Ted Dimon has written five books including Anatomy of the Moving Body, The Body in Motion, Your Body, Your Voice, The Elements of Skill, and The Undivided Self.
