Description

This volume provides an account of the inception and development of the Alexander Technique, and of the life of the man who invented it, F. M. Alexander.

Bloch presents the facts in poised, gentlemanly prose, noting foibles without moralising, and dryly alive to amusing details.

Texte du rabat

The Alexander Technique is a method of muscular re-education, which has become standard training for actors, dancers, and singers, and is practiced for health reasons all over the world. Its founder was an Australian actor who stumbled upon it in the 1890s after studying himself in mirrors to discover why he had lost his voice. He realised that most people suffered from the same postural defects he had noticed in himself, and that this explained much of what went wrong with them.
