I was on a course the other day and one of the facilitators seemed to be sitting very comfortably, in a well-balanced and poised way. On a hunch I asked her whether she had had lessons in the Alexander Technique.
“Well, many years ago,” she replied. “With a friend who trained to be an Alexander Technique teacher with Walter Carrington*.”
I hope this is encouraging to anyone either taking lessons or contemplating doing so, that the principles of the Technique, once learnt, can have life-long benefits.”
*Walter Carrington (1915–2005) was trained by F M Alexander and became a leading exponent of the Technique. He was an inspiration to generations of teachers.
