“Posture” is a tricky term. What society calls “good posture” is actually a rigidity of position that impedes your ease and efficiency of effort. A musician who practises “good posture,” for example, can become so rigid that he or she loses the “music.” An Alexander teacher, in contrast, helps you find the most efficient way to balance your body and use your energy. For an Alexander practitioner, “posture” refers to how all parts of your body constantly adapt to support your responses and intentions.
