I’ve written what it is many times, yesterday I explained that it is teaching co-ordination, co-ordination of the whole human entity with all its boundaries, all the boundaries you care to know or think about and some you didn’t know existed.
It’s the co-ordination that you wish you can have so that you can be better at whatever you aspire to be.
Many of us spend many years and a lot of money to learn how to do something, perhaps your job, vocation, or you hobby. The list is endless; sports, musician, actor, poet, writer, doctor, nurse, dentist, lecturer, decorator, chef, hula hoop maker… . The list is endless, we are all trained in some activity that would benefit with better co-ordination.
This improved co-ordination is what the Alexander Technique teaches.
Improving your co-ordination by teaching you how to be in balance with whatever you want to do and whomever you want to communicate or interact with.
The art is noticing how you are reacting instead of being in autopilot. Taking more control of your reactions your performance will improve.
The by-products of improved co-ordination are that pain will soften and may eventually disappear, you will be happier, there will be more time in your day.
You will feel great!
Why not give it a try, if you don’t like feeling free, almost weightless, brighter and happier this is not for you but then again you will never know until you try it. Unfortunately words can’t describe the freedom and aliveness that being in co-ordination brings.
