alan-treeYour posture is a precious asset. Like a garden, it requires cultivation. If your posture becomes fixed in time, no longer responsive to environmental change, growth will suffer. If we compensate for bad posture it is like pouring on water in times of drought. Our rootedness will  suffer. What is needed is not compensation, but cultivation, daily mindfulness, attention. Attention to our posture, to suppleness, to mechanical advantage in all our activities, is the domain of the Alexander Technique. Posture, you’ll find, is your active, moment-to-moment, reorganization and cultivation of your self. It is a formidable and precious life asset.
