Posture Workbook Summary


Posture Workbook: Free Yourself From Back, Neck And Shoulder Pain With The Alexander Technique by Carolyn Nicholls

Poor posture can interfere with mobility, breathing, circulation and digestion. It can contribute to overuse injuries to hands, arms and shoulders and it can affect our sense of wellbeing. Drawing on her 30 years of experience as a teacher of the Alexander Technique, Carolyn Nicholls explains exactly how to eliminate tension throughout the body and improve habitual patterns of movement. Carolyn Nicholls identifies typical behaviours that can result in unhealthy posture and explains how they can be improved. In The Posture Workbook Carolyn Nicholls identifies 5 key exercises to improve posture, awareness, flexibility and mobility. These '5-A-Day' exercises teach how to move more freely and easily and show how to live life free from postural pain. The Posture Workbook explains exactly how problems arise - whether through holding tension in certain parts of the body or relying on unhelpful, habitual patterns of movement. Carolyn Nicholls is the founder and Head of Training at the Brighton Alexander Technique College, UK and a national advisor on clinical trials on back pain. Her first book, Body, Breath and Being - a new guide to the Alexander Technique is a great critical and commercial success.

Posture Workbook Reviews


One of the UK's leading Alexander teachers, Carolyn Nicholls has just written a brilliant book on the Technique: The Posture Workbook (GBP14.99, D&B Publishing). If you want to learn how to apply the Alexander methods to everyday positions (such as driving and computer work), this is a good buy because it has photos showing what to do and what not to do. Helen Sillver, The Ecologist Every singer, musician or actor will have experienced tensions or postural problems at some stage. The Alexander Technique is a successful way of training the body to cope with these strains; and this book is an indispensable 'self-help' addition to the performer's library. Neil Jenkins, International Opera Singer The Posture Workbook presents the Alexander Technique in a fresh and engaging way and is a useful tool for people who just want to learn more about how to modify their posture - and it is also useful for Alexander teachers and their pupils. Hilary King, AT teacher This is a terrific book. It introduces the reader to the concepts and principles of the Alexander Technique in a friendly and interesting way, answering virtually all the questions of the inevitably puzzled new Alexander student. I am happy to recommend it to all of my students, and also to those who are curious and considering lessons in the technique. Thank you Carolyn Nicholls! Ellen Bierhorst, AT Teacher
