Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new, fully revised and updated edition confirms Body Learning's status as the classic work on the Alexander Technique for maintaining the health and efficiency of the body.

Michael J. Gelb is a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique. He is the director of the High Performance Learning Center in Washington, D.C., an international leadership consultancy to business and professional groups worldwide. He is also the author of the acclaimed Lessons from the Art of Juggling and Thinking for a Change.

The Alexander Technique is now recognized the world over as the most revolutionary and far-reaching method developed for maintaining the health and efficiency of the body. Essentially a type of therapy that aims to treat and prevent a range of disorders through a system of postural changes, the Technique stresses the importance of reeducating the muscular system as a means to achieve physical and mental well-being. By unlearning common bad postural habits and ways of using the body, people can alleviate tension, fatigue, back pain, neck stiffness, asthma, headaches, depression, and many other ailments. The book, now in its second edition, also shows how the Technique can be applied to every kind of learning experience, from children's education and the acquiring of basic skills to the most advanced needs of musicians, entertainers, professionals, and athletes.
