Body Learning

An Introduction to the Alexander Technique

Body Learning has been a steady bestseller since it was first published in 1981. This new and updated edition confirms its status as the classic work on the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique is now recognised the world over as the most revolutionary and far-reaching method ever developed for maintaining the health and efficiency of the human body. It is not only a means of putting us in touch with our bodies, but also a way of deepening our perceptions and general well-being. Its effects on all aspects of living and learning are profound. Body Learning supplies answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Alexander Technique, provides a glossary of significant terms, and a guide to dynamic relaxation. Qualified Alexander teacher Michael Gelb provides inspiration and guidance for newcomers to the technique and conveys a full understanding of the complex mental and physical dynamics involved. Rather than a method to accumulate information or learn something specifically new, the Alexander Technique is better thought of as the art of unlearning that which is habitual instead of natural, and in doing so, reclaiming some of our individual agency. Gelbs book offers an unbeatable introduction to the key facets of this enduring, yet ever-developing theory.

Zitat
'This book is to be welcomed...It shows the best way of returning to better and more healthy use of our 'equipment-for-motion.' Mr. Gelb seems to me uniquely qualified to speak with authority.' -- Professor Nikolaas Tinbergen, Nobel Laureate in Medicine and Physiology 'The approach to learning and the techniques outlined in Body Learning transformed my life. Read and practice, and Michael Gelb's profound message will transform yours.' -- Tony Buzan, author of The Mind Map Book
