Alexander Technique Exercises
Don’t just do something, sit there.
Alexander Technique exercises reduce tension, rather than increase tension.
For instance, notice any tension in your neck.
Let it go.
Free your neck again, and your head will rotate forward, and come up.
While your head is leading your spine up, think of your sit bones going down into the chair.
This lengthening might inspire you to breathe.
Notice any tension in your jaw and shoulders.
Release it. Just let it go, without going down.
Let go of any tension in your neck, or free your neck.
Slowly hinge forward and backward in your chair using your hip joints (not your waist.)
With your feet placed close to the chair, pivot forward at your hip joints, and let the weight of your torso shift over onto your feet as you send your feet into the floor.
Free your neck. Come up until you reach your full height.
