One of the best introductions on how good the Alexander Technique can be
on 14 October 2011
One of the thngs that is so impressive about this book is that everything is explained so clearly. There is no mumbo jumbo. Different chapters explain how the body should function when carrying out various daily activities, and how it so often fails to function as it should.
The author describes what ways of thinking might be useful to deal with such problems. She describes how such thoughts might be combined with actions to produce an improved result.
For example there is a whole chapter about sitting, which is rather useful for people who subject their bodies to considerable strain by slumping in front of a computer for hours on end and then go home to slump in front of a TV for another few hours.
At the end of each chapter there are suggested exercises which combine thought and action for readers to practise, which will give them some idea about how the Alexander Technique might be useful to them.
The photos (lots of them) are outstanding and the CD, enclosed in the book giving audio guidance neatly complements the clear explanations in the book.
And what a great cover photo!
All in all an exceptional introduction to the benefits of the Alexander Technique for the interested reader.
