The challenges of modern life are best met with poise, alertness, and nimbleness of mind and body. These attributes are our birthright, as demonstrated by every child at play. As adults, however, we tend instead to be hurried, inattentive, and stiff of mind and body. The Alexander Technique is an effective way of re-discovering our natural freedom, which is characterized not so much by what we do but by what we refrain from doing, and its resulting health and well-being.The Alexander Technique: A Skill for Life explains the principles of the Technique and uses testimonials, case histories, photos, and line drawings to illustrate its applications to medicine, personal relationships, sports and exercise, and the performing arts.

" This is an excellent introduction to the Alexander Technique by a highly qualified teacher. I have read several books on the AT but this would be the best I think. De Alcantara manages to convey some of the depth of the AT, making me realise its applications in the way we think, how we deal with our emotions, as well as how we use our bodies. More than any other book he allowed me to start to realise how the body and mind are not separate. Judith Leibowitz's book is excellent too, but simpler, less dense than this book. "
