I personally see the Technique as a challenging and pleasant journey of self-development. I became interested on it many years ago when I was studying to become a violinist at the Conservatory. I had regular back, neck and shoulder pain after many hours practising. The Alexander lessons felt great but most important I learned that I could do something for myself at any moment (specially while I was playing the violin). That helped enourmously to release the pain without depending on a therapist or excercises in order to get better. Not only that but also my violin playing, my sound, my focus and my stage presence were improving. After three years of intense training the Technique keeps revealing itself as a pratical and intelligent way of living which keeps allowing positive changes on my whole being.
