The Alexander Technique has revolutionised the physicality, presence and professional lives of generations of actors. By first asking you to identify your own acquired habits, the technique enables you to find new and beneficial ways of moving, thinking, breathing and performing, freely and without unnecessary tension.
Written by an experienced teacher of the Alexander Technique, this clear, supportive and highly practical book takes you step by step through a series of eleven guided lessons. Each explores different elements and principles of the technique:

Training yourself to stay present, and mindful of your environment
Thinking (but not overthinking!) in new ways
Observing and developing your natural poise
Sitting, standing and walking easily and effortlessly
Breathing and speaking with release and power
Applying all of this work to characterisation and performance
