Learn to use attention, intention and your whole self to achieve your best performance in daily and professional life
The Alexander Technique has been a resource for over a century for helping people to meet the challenges of life. It came to my attention many years ago when I was coping with a debilitating form of arthritis that created great discomfort and loss of flexibility. I was very resistant to the idea, but I was finally persuaded to attend a weeklong workshop in a beautiful property in West Virginia at an old mansion that was once owned by a relative of George Washington. During my first days there, I didn't understand what was happening and I didn't notice anything at first. On the 3rd day I found myself walking down a dusty road and I noticed a sensation that as if I were floating. I felt a sense of kinesthetic lightness and freedom of movement I hadn't experienced since I was a child. It was explained to me that this change was something anyone could learn. I was inspired and not long after that I decided to train to be a teacher.
