Product Description

Product Description

Since its beginnings in Australia in the 1890s, the Alexander Technique has become renowned as a powerful and effective antidote to the stresses and strains that modern life places upon our bodies.

This introductory guide presents readers with a definitive overview of the Alexander technique which teaches us how to co-ordinate mind and body effectively so that our thinking is clarified and our movements become naturally lighter.

It also includes a chapter on how to practise the technique at home as well as a useful resources section.

Written in an engaging style and full of illustrations and photographs that demonstrate the technique, this book will be of interest to anyone considering options for treatment, as well as anyone wanting to know more about the Alexander Technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important and Comprehensive Contribution 27 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent analysis of the Alexander Technique by a leading authority. As well as covering the expected background of F.M. Alexander and what the technique is Jeremy focuses on working on yourself without the aid of a teacher. This is covered in far more depth than is usual in most books on the technique.

The book also contains an outline of the various teaching lineages which is very useful as the technique has been passed down from teacher to pupil who then becomes teacher in the same manner as knowledge was passed down from generation to generation. There are therefore inevitable significant differences in approach.

The book will be useful to experienced students and teachers as well as beginners as this is a very well written work with depth and originality.
