A Beautiful Description of the Alexander Technique

I apologize for not crediting the person who wrote this description of the Alexander Technique, that says so many things that I want to say every time someone asks me to describe this work and why one should study it. I will add the credit as soon as I relocate it:


“We are designed for movement.  Inherent in our design is an incredible capacity for ease, flexibility, power and expressiveness, whether we are dancing, hammering a nail, working at a computer, singing, or simply walking.  All too often we unknowingly interfere with this design, replacing energy, delight and grace with effort, tension and fatigue.  The Alexander Technique gives you a choice…allowing you to regain natural poise and balance within any activity.”
