Life Just Got Easier with the Alexander Technique — 7 Comments

  1. Fabulous blog! Nothing is more true for me, and that phrase does resonate–because it has been proven experientially. I am in the process of writing my “Alexander Life Story” and I’m thinking of all the many ways my life did get much, much easier once I started taking Alexander lessons. Of course, opening up to my true self also opened me up to a whole world of pain I had been ignoring, but my teacher was able to support me through that (along with some other key people in my life), and the liberation that resulted was phenomenal.

    The Alexander Technique helps me to look honestly at myself and my habits — life just got easier! I can open my heart to a full range of feelings — life just got easier! I can breathe again — life just got easier!

    And thanks for the shout out to my blog — life just got easier! 🙂

    • Thanks, Amy. I love your list, and am amazed that breathing didn’t show up on my own (which was, of course, just some of the many ways)! I’m also very much looking forward to reading your “Alexander Life Story!”

  2. Life got easier for me in so many ways once I learned to integrate the Alexander Technique into my work, exercise, ‘play’, and me time.

    Being challenged with mere sitting and standing has been part of my daily life these past several years. Can you imagine the fear of falling each and every time you got out of bed, went up a flight of stairs or stood up from my seat on a plane, at the cinema or at a business event to shake the hand of a prospective client. Using the Alexander Technique now comes second nature to my movement, like breathing, I now know what to expect. I trust it.

    The Alexander Technique has given me back my freedom-something I’d thought was lost forever.

    • Mary Jo, Thank you so much for your comments. I am truly moved to hear you speak so highly of the Technique. Having come to know you over the past couple of years, I have an idea of some of the challenges you face. I’m so pleased that the Alexander Technique has been so helpful, and that it has indeed made your life easier.

  3. I love this tag line too, and my own experience of Alexander has been so much about living with more ease. Even my most busy, challenging times are so much easier than before my Alexander practice. I often think about moving through daily things, from making coffee in the morning, to riding a bike, to standing in line, to teaching, with as much ease and spaciousness as I can. Everything is so much more pleasurable when ease is forefront in my consciousness!

  4. I blog often and I really appreciate your information. This great article
