Alexander Technique

What is the Alexander Technique?


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.

In Limbo


It’s been a long morning waiting.

I’ve been waiting quietly for a few days.

Earlier I hadn’t put things on hold by my waiting.

This morning I did.

I was waiting to do something that was completely out of my control!

I was waiting for a litter of puppies to be born.

I was stuck in limbo, waiting.

Scared to move in case I missed something.

Something I hoped I could help with.

I didn’t need to help

She knew what to do and this was her first time!

She learnt very quickly how to care for her puppies.

This strange place of being in limbo, I haven’t noticed it for a long time. It is the expectation of doing something that may be out of my control or understanding.

Giving in to someone else’s control isn’t something I normally do willing, there are exceptions.

We now have 8 puppies just a few hours old, some even less.

The waiting is over, time to enjoy the puppies.

Time to stop waiting and get on with my life
