AT for Musicians

The aim of the technique is not to do what is right, but to help you stop doing what is wrong, through a series of practical procedures which awaken awareness and allow you to develop your innate potential. The Alexander Technique applies to all areas of musical activity, from technique, sound production, and interpretation, to daily practice, rehearsal routines, and the mitigating of stage fright and health problems.

The exercises are linked to accurate anatomical drawings, showing where stress is most pronounced in the body


Master the Art of Swimming

the Shaw method takes the Alexander Technique into the swimming pool - focusing on releasing tension. Shaw has evolved a unique way of breaking down strokes into a series of therapeutic movements, which can be practised individually or with a partner, in a pool or on dry land. Shaw looks at the most popular strokes - front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke and butterfly - focusing on maximum efficiency and minimum strain.

Guidance to help dancers understand how to apply the Alexander Technique to their discipline. The authors clearly explain  how to access  bodily sensations and utilise them to organise efficient, easy, and elegant movement



The AT Birth Book

The authors show how the technique can be used to achieve a more natural birth. They explain how many of the health problems associated with pregnancy can be traced back to faulty posture, and how by achieving an overall improvement in balance and movement, a mother's experience of childbirth can be transformed, with numerous benefits to her own health and her baby's development
