5.0 out of 5 stars New chapters and thoughtfully revised edition, 25 Nov. 2014
Two new chapters in the 2nd edition of this successful book - one on chronic pain and another on wellbeing - illuminate once again how the Alexander Technique can offer people the skills and ability for increased self-awareness and self-management - whether to regain mobility, manage pain, or promote general ease in their life. This truly is a revised edition, with a great new type-face and production as well as a set of useful audio files free to download from the publisher's site. This book is one I return to again and again. As a teacher of Alexander Technique I find myself sharing it with all those who come to learn. It is a wise and accessible book on the technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and effective self-help, 11 Nov. 2012
A great handbook for anyone wishing to understand and refine their posture. Grounded in the subtle yet practical ideas of the Alexander Technique it contains clear, well-written explanations of how our body works from the inside out. There are striking photos along with individual stories showing how the way we stand, sit and move can interfere with our natural internal support systems. A clear progression through the ideas leads to the postural '5-a-day' section which gives useful advice and postural exercises to explore - all of which can be carried out at home with no specialist equipment. As an Alexander Technique teacher I find this is an inspiring book to share with people seeking a 'self-help' approach to posture and well-being.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An Alexander Technique book for the 21st century, 28 Sept. 2011
A modern and accessible book for beginners, teachers of the technique, or anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of how our physical coordination and general wellbeing are connected. Clarity of writing and great photos demystify what could be abstract concepts in the principles and practice of the technique, and there is an excellent audio CD included. The author distills her formidable knowledge and understanding from over 25 years teaching into clear and practical language and presents informative and interesting case studies. Anyone wanting to understand and learn more about their posture and coordination - or why HOW we go about standing, sitting or moving matters - should read this book. It gave me insight into my own back pain, and how to manage and lessen it.
