About this book:

Body Learning is classic work. First published in 1981 in London, this book answers in simple terms the question “What is the Alexander Technique and how can it help me?” Body Learning includes a reader-friendly introduction to the seven operational ideas of the Alexander Technique and emphasizes the usefulness of Alexander’s approach in easing the path of lifelong learning.

Essentially a type of therapy that aims to treat and prevent a range of disorders through a system of postural changes, the Alexander Technique stresses the importance of reeducating the muscular system as a means to achieve physical and mental well-being. By unlearning common bad postural habits and ways of using the body, people can alleviate tension, fatigue, back pain, neck stiffness, asthma, headaches, depression, and many other ailments. The book also shows how the Alexander Technique can be applied to every kind of learning experience, from children’s education and the acquiring of basic skills to the most advanced needs of musicians, entertainers, professionals, and athletes.

What people say:
This book is to be welcomed. It shows the best way of returning to better and more healthy use of our equipment-for-motion. Mr. Gelb seems to me uniquely qualified to speak with authority.” — Professor Nikolaas Tinbergen, Nobel Laureate in Medicine and Physiology
