peter in port, February 18, 2008 (view all comments by peter in port)
A good introduction to the Alexander Technique, a method invented by Frederick Mathias Alexander, an English actor who developed voice problems. His realization that his voice problems were causally connected to his posture led him to investigate how we stand, sit, walk and do the everyday activities. This book is not a substitute for lessons from a trained Alexander Technique teacher, but a good accompaniment for those interested in taking such lessons.
