Alexander Technique has to be the ultimate skill we can learn when it comes to ourselves. It continues to provide ongoing experiential self-discovery of how mind and body function as an inextricable unified whole. Giving ourselves time to stop and observe how what we do in action in terms of postural and co-ordination habits provides us with more awareness of how we are designed to function.
The importance of the head, neck and back relationship, also known as the Primary Control, cannot be emphasised enough. Our full stature, head balance and freedom in our neck are absolutely crucial in this respect. This determines everything in terms of ourselves, rather than diminishing ourselves in whatever way we have learned, we can gradually learn what it means to move with more ease and balance, to speak and sing with increased resonance and enunciation, even to play an instrument with improved dexterity or breath, also to cultivate our sense self-belief and self-worth.
We can indeed learn to do less in terms of unnecessary muscular effort and simultaneously do more for ourselves by paying attention to what we're doing with our psychophysical (as in mindbody) instrument.
