Why is Alexander Technique not Compulsory at school, asks 12 year old boy!

This is a completely spontaneous comment from a 12 year old boy I teach at school. I am lucky to teach the Alexander Technique at a high school in Edinburgh.


“I think Alexander Technique should be compulsory at all schools because people need to be more aware of the way they think and do. As I learn less is more I have a whole new perspective and the ability to completely stress relieve just by doing nothing for 17 minutes and thinking about myself in different ways.”


Ethan, age 12
