Alexander Technique
("easier movement with less strain")

The Alexander Technique is a method of self learning to recover the original flexibility and easiness of movement through an increase in self conscience and conscient directing, identifying and correcting habits and patterns of movement.

Benefits/Results: improve posture without tension, move more efficiently with less effort, improve coordination and balance, breathe and speak more easily.

Where to apply: dance, theater, swimming, dentist, sitting at the computer, Zen meditation, golf, playing music instrument... any situation which involves movement, effort, posture.

How to learn?
Through a process of self-discovery and experimentation supported by a teacher of Alexander Technique in individual lessons.
Verbal directives and manual touch specifically adjusted to each person stimulate a way of dealing with one self with more awareness.

"The Alexander Technique is a method of self-help. Its purpose is to help people to avoid doing things that are harmful to their general wellbeing. The method is unique because, unlike most systems that advise people what to do or how to do it, this teaches what not to do and how to prevent it."
Walter Carrington (1915-2005)

Disclaimer: it is very difficult to understand what a disclaimer must be, for a good (in German) discussion of the legal aspects see Wirksamkeit von Disclaimern für Webseiten.
I have given up hope on understanding what I should or can do and try to keep on the side of good-sense: the links contained in this page lead either to my own pages or to public, serious webpages for which I am not responsible (even if it seems the german law does not accept as enough that I say I am not responsible because exactly by saying that I acknowledge my links lead to dubious material for which I could be made responsible...). So, PLEASE, If you find any link which does not work or leads to anything you find offensive (or do not want me to link to your page) please e-mail me: everything changes continually and I cannot check the validity or content of linked pages everyday. Chances are I might find it offensive also and will remove it as soon as possible.
