Book Recommendations

There are many excellent books on the Alexander Technique. Here are a few of my favourites:

 

The Alexander Technique

Twelve fundamentals of integrated movement by Penelope Easten
(2021)

This is a hefty book and read written primarily for Alexander Technique Teachers, but I include it because it is the book most consistent with my current teaching style.

Mindfulness in 3D

Alexander Technique for the 21st century by Peter Nobes
(2018)

This is a great book that does justice to thinking aspects of the Alexander Technique in a way that few books do.  Well worth a read in my view.

Alexander Technique in Everyday Activity

Improve how you sit, stand, walk, work and run by Sean Carey
(2015)

This is a practical book with excellent illustrations and an excellent place to start if you are new to the Alexander Technique.

Perfect Poise, Perfect Life

Bring your body into balance and revolutionise your life by Noel Kinsley
(2005)

This is an easy read and another good place to start if you are new to the Alexander Technique.
