Product description

Product Description
Your long-term health and well-being are profoundly affected by how you use your body in everyday activities such as walking, sitting (at work or at leisure), bending, using and moving objects. This groundbreaking book analyses a sequence of basic human movements that all able-bodied people in any society perform. You will learn both how to better perform everyday activities including standing, walking, sitting, running, bending, breathing and lying down - and the reasons why most of us do these 'badly'.

This book will be just as invaluable to those that are quite new to the technique as to experienced Alexander teachers.

Alexander Technique in Everyday Activity is an excellent book. It's always difficult to write engagingly about something that has to be felt and lived for true understanding, but Séan Carey has managed it. I find myself regularly dipping into it for a refresher of everything I learned from him many years ago
Dr Roger Neighbour OBE, Past President of the Royal College of General Physicians and author of The Inner Consultation and The Inner Apprentice

The Alexander Technique is the perfect antidote to the busy lives we lead, and this absorbing book takes the reader gently through the techniques to achieve that equilibrium
Rosalynde Lowe CBE, Former Chair of the Queen's Nursing Institute; Member of the Joint Board of Brighton and Sussex Medical School

Whether you are a teacher, trainee, or student, taking the time to understand and explore the principles and explorations in this book will prove to be time well spent
Karen DeWig, Director of the Alexander Center of Albuquerque
Review in American Society for the Alexander Technique (AmSAT) Journal
