First of all, thank you very much for making this DVD. People need to know about Alexander Technique (AT). I think it is a shame that for the most part only performers know and experience AT, when all people can benefit from learning it! I would not have known about it, if I had not started to learn the piano as an adult (I read about AT in a book about piano technique!)

The DVD is well-done overall. The progression of information is excellent, and the selected visual scenes are appropriate and effective. I also loved the background music!

There are three main parts in the DVD: 1. Introduction to AT, which mentions the benefits of AT 2. The theory of AT, which includes its principles and demonstration lessons 3. Self-Practice, which includes lying down work in a semi-supine position (Some AT teachers call it Constructive Rest).

The maker of the DVD is Anthony Kingsley, who is an AT teacher and trainer, and among the participating members is Sir George Trevelyan who had studied with F.M. Alexander himself (the founder of the technique)! I felt it was an honor to watch him on screen as he shared useful information and explanations.
Kingsley's chair lesson was very effective to me in the way he guided his student to become aware of her habits and change them (in the time of the lesson) by following AT procedure. Of course, it is expected that the student may have gone back to her habit soon after the lesson, but the point of learning AT, as I see it, is to know that there is a better way to use ourselves, and to know that overtime this better (coordinated) way can become integrated so as to replace old habits.

A bonus section is F.M. Alexander's short video (no sound, because it is an old movie).

I bought this primarily for my husband, who suffers from chronic back pain, to go with a book about the Alexander Technique (AT). My husband is more of a visual learner, so I thought the DVD would be a good intro to AT.

The film looks very dated, and although they have some good speakers, some are really snoozers. I was hoping for more 'model' examples (modeling the postures), real life examples and ideas of how this works in everyday life.

If that is what you are looking for, don't buy this DVD.
