I’ve been thinking, I’ve been writing about the Alexander Technique or Alexander’s discoveries for some time, you may be getting confused in what the difference is, I certainly do sometimes and I’m still not sure what the differences are.
Here are my 2nd July 2017 definitions. Be warned I will change my view on these definitions at a later date.
Alexander’s discoveries are the;
- head spine relationship,
- if we are balanced and free to about this vertical axis we have greater opportunity to be balanced and free in our limbs.
- to be balanced and free we naturally rid ourselves of debilerating habits that prevent us from being balanced and free.
The Alexander Technique is a developed collection of activities for a person to undertake so that they can learn and enact Alexander’s discoveries.
These discoveries are within everyone if they choose to discover them and other modalities explain them in their own particular way.
The power of these discoveries is combining the two together as a whole in psychophysical unity.
If you are intrigued, go find an Alexander Technique teacher.
