The Alexander Technique is a proven, simple, and effective method of training your body so you'll never have to suffer from backaches, headaches, and other spine/brain-related signs of stress and tension. The program doesn't require pills or equipment. You become more aware of how you sit, stand, walk, and bend as you go about your daily activities, and then learn how to correct bad habits you've developed over time. The workbook format lets you direct special techniques toward your own personal lifestyle, whether you're active or sedentary, so you can select movements and exercises to regain youthful grace and energy.
