Review quote

Excellent and beautifully-illustrated guide to the Alexander technique of postural (and emotional) realignment to combat the abuses we unconsciously heap on our skeletons and muscles daily. This book stands out not only for leading practioner Richard Brennan's clarity of expression but also for its thoughtful explanations and application of the technique to special situations - playing musical instruments, pregnancy and birth, driving, and during sport. You need lessons from a qualified teacher to start with, but this book is an excellent initial overview and offers support during and after training. (Kirkus UK)
