Recommended Reading: Body, Breath and Being, by Carolyn Nicholls. Nicholls has done a terrific job describing the process of learning the Alexander Technique, step by step, with very helpful pictures. Particularly valuable, in Body, Breath and Being's first chapter, is Nicholls' description of how to assume a powerful posture and practice called semi-supine, which you can do daily, on your own.There is no adequate substitute for in-person lessons, but this is a great introduction and companion to lessons with a trained Alexander Technique teacher.
The Constructive Teaching Centre in London carries on Walter Carrington's training for teachers of Alexander Technique, a continuation of F.M. Alexander's own teacher training.
