Children being profound about the Alexander Technique!
“ I find it makes everything easier because there is less tension throughout my being. I get tense when I start thinking too much about being right as opposed to being free and allowing myself to be wrong.
Allowing myself to be wrong is useful as I am putting less pressure on myself. I can think more clearly. I have more choice and I can appreciate being right more easily. My habitual experiences are not in the way of my development.”

“ Alexander Technique is very helpful for me because I am a stressful person inside. The Alexander Technique has helped me release mental and physical tension which frees my body and makes me feel calm and collected. It also expands my mind to different ideas, to look at things from a different perspective. You concentrate on anything and think forward and up and soon I find my neutral zone to feel and think calmly and it feels balanced and easier to live life.
It helps with my creativity because it is an experimental way of thinking about daily activity and it helps enlarge my creative side because there are no mistakes and even if there might be a mistake you can learn to come back to your poised mind and inner self. You can just step back and acknowledge where you ant wrong and think forward and up again.”
