Be In Your Body
"I can still recall the intensity of my first experience of the Alexander Technique in March 1978.
Although nothing dramatic seemed to happen during the lesson – and from the outside the untrained eye might think that nothing was happening – the changes in my nervous system were profound.
After the session, which lasted no more than 25 minutes, I went and sat in a nearby café to drink a cup of coffee and try to process the new sensations, which I can best describe as an awareness of myself as a living organism rather than a continually changing procession of thoughts."
Recent randomised trials of the efficacy of lessons in the Alexander technique have shown it is effective in alleviating both low back and neck pain.
Music and Drama academies have long recognised the benefits of Alexander work for performing artists, which is why it is taught at the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, RADA and many other institutions in the UK and overseas. Apart from dealing with or avoiding the pain and discomfort often associated with performance, the improved awareness which results from lessons impacts on both rehearsal and performance.
