The Alexander Technique changed my life.
Before taking the Alexander Technique, I couldn't walk around the block - my feet hurt so much.
Doctors would say nothing was wrong.
My Ayurvedic physician recommended that I massage my feet. That was a good suggestion, but it didn't take away the pain.
The pain was because of the way I was moving and walking. The way I sat at the compute. I had a lot of tension and was compressing my spine by sitting in a letter C-Shape!
Now, I can easily walk up to 10 miles a day.
That's a big difference from having pain after walking a few hundred steps.
I also breathe better and manage stress more effectively. Because the way I move and sit has completely changed - my breath has changed.
Whereas before my walk was a bit robotic, now my movement is elegant - because I am not carrying around unnecessary tension. And, I understand the mechanics of walking efficiently.
Recently, I was at a beach. I squatted to reach for a shell. A woman walking by said, "You can squat! That's all over for me. Too much pain." We are about the same age, but she'll experience more limits and possibly a lot more pain if she neglects to learn to move well.
So, come and take this class with me.
It's really fun to move like a kid.
And it could change your life.
