    DescriptionSince its beginnings in Australia in the 1890s, the Alexander Technique has become renowned as a powerful and effective antidote to the stresses and strains that modern life places upon our bodies. This introductory guide presents readers with a definitive overview of the Alexander technique which teaches us how to co-ordinate mind and body effectively so that our thinking is clarified and our movements become naturally lighter. Encompassing everything from teaching lineages to how the method works to how to find a practitioner, the book provides all the key information on the topic. It also includes a chapter on how to practise the technique at home as well as a useful resources section. Written in an engaging style and full of illustrations and photographs that demonstrate the technique, this book will be of interest to anyone considering options for treatment, as well as anyone wanting to know more about the Alexander Technique.
