One of the UK's leading Alexander teachers, Carolyn Nicholls has just written a brilliant book on the Technique: The Posture Workbook (GBP14.99, D&B Publishing). If you want to learn how to apply the Alexander methods to everyday positions (such as driving and computer work), this is a good buy because it has photos showing what to do and what not to do. Helen Sillver, The Ecologist Every singer, musician or actor will have experienced tensions or postural problems at some stage. The Alexander Technique is a successful way of training the body to cope with these strains; and this book is an indispensable 'self-help' addition to the performer's library. Neil Jenkins, International Opera Singer The Posture Workbook presents the Alexander Technique in a fresh and engaging way and is a useful tool for people who just want to learn more about how to modify their posture - and it is also useful for Alexander teachers and their pupils. Hilary King, AT teacher This is a terrific book. It introduces the reader to the concepts and principles of the Alexander Technique in a friendly and interesting way, answering virtually all the questions of the inevitably puzzled new Alexander student. I am happy to recommend it to all of my students, and also to those who are curious and considering lessons in the technique. Thank you Carolyn Nicholls! Ellen Bierhorst, AT Teacher
From the Back Cover
DO you suffer from back or muscle pain

Poor posture can interfere with our mobility, breathing, circulation and digestion. It can contribute to overuse injuries to hands, arms and shoulders and it can affect our sense of wellbeing.

With the help of this book the answer is a resounding - YES!
Drawing on her 30 years of experience as a teacher of the Alexander Technique, Carolyn Nicholls explains exactly how to eliminate tension throughout your body and improve your habitual patterns of movement. Carolyn Nicholls identifies typical behaviours that can result in unhealthy posture and explains how they can be improved
In The Posture Workbook Carolyn Nicholls identifies 5 key exercises to improve posture, awareness, flexibility and mobility. These ‘5-A-Day’ exercises will teach you how to move more freely and easily and show you how to live your life free from postural pain.
Carolyn Nicholls is the founder and Head of Training at the Brighton Alexander Technique College, UK and a national advisor on clinical trials on back pain. Her first book, Body, Breath and Being – a new guide to the Alexander Technique is a great critical and commercial success.

A year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with arthritis/osteoporosis of the neck/spine and have been dealing with dizziness/foggy brain/frozen face. I have been to a physical therapist which helped some. I found Carolyn's book and decided to give it a try (there are no Alexander Technique instructors close to me in Montana). I had decided that if these exercises didn't help, I would have to go back to a physical therapist. I have been doing the "Daily 5" for about a month and they are definitely helping. I do them in the morning and if by chance (which is getting less and less) I start getting the feeling back during the day -- I do them again -- and they do clear up my head.
This book has made me much more aware of what I am doing to my body and I am now very conscious of how I sit, stand and move.
I have also been doing Yang Style Tai Chi for about three years and I was getting so I couldn't do my kicks because of balance (dizzy). I can now do my kicks again with confidence! Thank you, Carolyn!
