“it ain’t what you do – it’s the way that you do it” *
Many of our problems are caused by the unhelpful routines and habits that we have unconsciously fallen into.
Becoming more physically aware gives us more control of ourselves. We have choice; we aren’t the victims of our unconscious habit patterns.
For example, it is not easy to be aware of something as ordinary as how we sit. There are hundreds of different ways to sit. But until we are aware of how we sit, we can’t begin to decide whether it is a positive way, or if it could be improved.
It is not easy to change old patterns. If it were, we would all be perfect most of the time! The Alexander Technique is a set of skills anyone can learn, leading to greater self – control through awareness and choice.
“You have done wonders with my husband. I have been nagging him for years to sit up straight, but with zero results. After just a few lessons with you, he seemed to be able to.”
