The Alexander Technique was developed by an Australian actor, F.
Matthias Alexander, 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.
Providing a complete programme of procedures to follow for daily activities and sports, this groundbreaking book brings the Alexander Technique within reach of us all. Perfectly safe to use a part of your daily life, this book 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; and 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.
