Many a condition of our modern lifestyle, be it bending over a desk or slumping in an automobile, continue to cause us to lose the excellent posture that we are born with. Poor posture can lead to problems ranging from stiff necks, bad backs, headaches, irritability, lethargy, and depression. The New Life Library's Alexander Technique is a highly-illustrated guide to the theory behind and practice of the Alexander Technique. This text clearly demonstrates how modified posture can bring relief from pain and stress.

The book commences with a detailed explanation of the Alexander Technique and how, by re-aligning the head, neck and back, we can revel in stress-free movement. This is immediately followed by descriptions of more appropriate postures for basic movements such as walking, standing, sitting, bending, lifting, carrying, and squatting, among other poor postural habits that we may fall into. Even everyday activities within the home, such as ironing, vacuuming, cleaning, cooking, using the telephone, and working at a desk, can be improved by following the simple illustrated instructions in the Alexander Technique. Furthermore, this book proves that it is possible to modify your posture in order to both relieve your body of the stresses of everyday life and drastically improve your general health.
