Introductory Books on the Alexander Technique

Recommended for people who are considering having Alexander Lessons, or who simply want to know more about it. There are well over a hundred introductory books on the Alexander Technique so this is a small selection of the ones we consider to be the most informative.


Body Learning: An Introduction to the Alexander Technique

Almost certainly the most popular introductory book with clear explanations of the principles of the Alexander Technique. We recommend all our new pupils to read it. Ignore the last chapter when he just goes on about himself - the rest of the book is excellent!



 The Alexander Technique: A Skill for Life

This is an excellent title, which manages to be a good read, whilst giving an in-depth explanation of the Technique, and is highly recommended.

A clear and straightforward introduction - No frills, easy to understand, concentrating on the method itself, as seen from the student's viewpoint.


 Free Yourself from Back Pain: A guide to the Alexander Technique

A new introductory book by a highly regarded teacher. We're not that keen on the title because it suggests that all the technique is about is resolving back pain, and although this is a common reason for people having lessons, the Alexander Technique has so much more to offer. This becomes clear when you read the book, which is clear, well written and well illustrated

An interesting new contribution from a long standing teacher that explains the mind body connection using case studies and self-experimentation. Told from her personal point of view Missy Vineyard offers new insights into the work 


 Body, Breath and Being: A New Guide to the Alexander Technique

"Body, Breath and Being" explores the Alexander Technique through the experiences of those who have studied it and benefited from it. Highly recommended.
