Book Description

The Alexander Technique was developed by an Australian actor, F. Matthias lexander, to improve the way the body is used by treating mind and body as a whole. Long popular with actors and dancers because of the stamina, flexibility and relaxation it offers, physiotherapists and doctors are now recommending it to help stress-related movement and posture disorders. It provides a complete programme of procedures to follow for daily activities and sports, enabling the reader to follow the technique without having to attend classes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This has everything that my 16yr old needs for her BTEC performing arts course. Comprehensive also can mean some parts seem very technical, but that's why we bought it, so can't complain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title. The book is not about Alexander Technique. 13 July 2005
By M. Coppedge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Although the book carries the title "Alexander Technique" it does not teach it. The authors emphasize throughout their book, that the Alexander Technique can be learned only with the help of specially trained teachers and not by reading a book. So, instead of Alexander's technique, the authors offer their own set of exercises, called Leibowitz Procedures. According to the authors, these procedures help you learn to observe yourself in motion, but they are not identical with Alexander Technique. A few pencil drawings accompany extensive descriptions but unless you know what instructions such as "let your neck be free and your legs release away from the torso" mean, they are not too useful.
