The Alexander Technique: Think Your Way to Good Posture

baby posture
I’ve just begun my study of the Alexander Technique.

A primary tenet is to think your muscles into good posture, not to move them, as most of us would have thought. For example, instead of pulling your shoulders back, think broaden chest. It’s subtle.

It is suggested that you pause before moving and think about what your body is doing. The Alexander Technique is a re-education in using your body—it teaches you how to use your body in a more ergonomic way.

If you’re like me, you “know” a lot of things about posture that are not true. For example, you probably think of your hips as an extension of your legs. Look at a skeleton and you’ll see that your hips are attached to your spine and are an extension of your torso. Just this piece of knowledge about your anatomy can help you move more fluidly and with less effort.
Learning the Alexander Technique helps you become aware of tensions in your body and helps you figure out how to release those tensions.

Sounds good to me!
