Let Your Life Flow, book on the Alexander technique by Mr. Alex Maunder
Let Your Life Flow, C.W. Daniel, 2002
This book (Let Your Life Flow) attempts to explain the Alexander Technique in a clear and concise modern language with chapters on Alexander’s original story, and the power of bad postural habits. It explains the basics of the Alexander Technique in terms of balance, breathing and mentally giving “directions” (visualising connecting lines and spaces within the body) whilst maintaining a non-judgmental attitude.
Energy Model of the Alexander Technique
It then goes on to propose an energy model of the Alexander Technique, where mentally giving “directions” has the power to stimulate the flow of life energy in the body. There is a chapter, with clear drawings and explanations, on how to perform certain flowing movement patterns.
The Implications of the Mind-Body Link
Then the book looks at the deeper implications of the mind/body link, the psychological significance of posture, and how to achieve a healthy psychological as well as physical balance. There is a final chapter on the spiritual, or consciousness-altering dimension of the Alexander Technique, which has often been reported to induce greater calmness and a more accepting and non-judgmental attitude towards the inner self and the outer world.”
