Summary

It's important for students of The Alexander Technique to understand human anatomy and physiology in relation to movement and stance. This audiobook explains how the systems within the body are structured and how they function, including a focused look at the muscular and skeletal systems. You will learn about postures, the senses, and sensory perception, which will prepare you for the exercises and changes of habit that you will learn to practice by studying this course. 

As the Alexander Technique is concerned with the body-mind connection, you will learn about the neurology of its fundamental methods. You will understand how the brain's function and psychological habits leak into the structure of the body and why this is important to comprehend. 

You will be fully submerged in the principles of the Alexander Technique. You will learn how to facilitate freeing and conscious movement, and become mindful of your body and your thoughts to connect both elements for ultimate well-being. You'll gain a greater understanding of your own pain and habitual behaviors and how to approach these with mindful awareness - making positive change an easier process.

Nonsense

While the Alexander technique is well founded and recommended by doctors this book is full of hocus pocus. Avoid .

Very little Alexander Technique

While there is some interesting content on mindfulness and wellness, there is very little Alexander Technique content in this recording.

It was very hard for me to listen to...

... monotonous and off-topic. I gave up after the second chapter struggling not to fall asleep.
