This ground breaking book brings the Alexander Technique within reach of us all. Practical and informative, it introduces a holistic movement method devised more than a hundred years ago, which has been used by generations of actors, dancers, musicians and athletes to improve posture, flexibility and stamina, and to prevent unnecessary strain. As well as the principles developed by F. Matthias Alexander, you will find a unique self-help section of exercises devised by the authors, both practitioners and teachers of the Alexander Technique. Perfectly safe to use a part of your daily life, they will help you in all you do. You will learn: how to walk, stand, sit, lift, bend and reach; how to move your body when driving, cycling, doing housework or gardening; how to get the most out of any sport, from golf and tennis to swimming and skiing; how to devise your own self-help programme to suit your particular life-style. The Alexander Technique is not just another exercise regime but a way of life, a subtle method of changing habits and attitudes to achieve greater body awareness, improved functioning and better co-ordination. You will feel healthier and happier than perhaps ever before.
