Some of us tend to freeze our movement when we stand, sit, play an instrument, sing, talk, etc. we seem to stop, stop as if waiting for the next thing. We collapse, we narrow ourselves, our attention narrows and our system/body compresses, we squeeze in, we even interfere with our breathing. For most of us this is a normal way to be, we don’t notice much we just do it, without a thought so it seems. It becomes part of how we we do everything we do, in a fixed way and feels normal to us, it is now an habitual way to be.
But when we quiet ourselves and start listening in we can notice our thoughts as well as what is it that we do, how we have organised ourselves in any particular moment or activity. Taking time to notice opens up new possibilities for change, ease and greater coordination. The Alexander Technique shows us a way to understand the way we do what we do and gives us the opportunity to be mindful in our every day activity, so we don't build unnecessary stress and don't burn out.
