Alexander Technique Our body has a rhythm in which it breathes and in which it goes into its natural direction. Like a flower and a tree grow. Like the movement of the sea and its waves. We listen to this rhythm. We learn again how to interrupt it less. This isn`t something we do not know. As children we were familiar with a more balanced relation to our body. This relation was accessible to us. It happened by itself.
Now it needs a part of our attention.

Frederick Matthias Alexander recognized 2 essential things. That the relationship of the neck, the head and the back to each other, which he called the primary control, is crucial to the way the rest of the body works; and that the body and the mind form an inseparable unity.
In his most famous book, The Use of the Self, he describes his path in the founding of the Alexander Technique.
