Synopsis

The Alexander Technique Workbook The Complete Guide to Health, Poise and Fitness by Richard Brennan

Developed at the turn of the century by F.M. Alexander, the Alexander Technique is a simple method of improving posture and body movement in order to reduce the physical and mental tensions that we accumulate throughout our lives. The practical value of learning to use muscles efficiently has been demonstrated by the millions of people who have successfully applied its principles to relieve common ailments, improve confidence, and for general well-being. This step-by-step guide is an accessible introduction to the subject outlining the key procedures involved and explaining the theory behind a series of simple but effective exercises that will produce real results. The book brings this 100-year-old discipline completely up-to-date, incorporating recent developments in the management of physical and mental stress.
