This book shows you how to really make the most of yourself. Most people aspire to be more beautiful, more successful, more charismatic and more confident but so often they fail to match up to their expectations. In this book, Noel Kingsley shows how we can fulfil our potential by refining our natural poise, balance and co-ordination and how, by bringing our bodies into balance, we can revolutionise our lives.
As children we are born with natural poise but as we grow we acquire bad habits that affect the way we feel and function. This can not only cause problems such as stiffness, backache, headaches and stress, but also impact on the way we relate to those around us both at home and in the workplace. This book shows you how you can begin to become more consciously in control so that you can rid yourself of your old habits and be more effective.
As with any piece of equipment, if the body is not used appropriately, there will be unnecessary wear and tear that will ultimately affect the way it functions and consequently affect our efficiency and performance. If our poise is off-balance we can suffer strain and unnecessary tension that in turn can affect our self-confidence, our speaking voice and our ability to engage fully in social situations.
The book is split into three parts. Part One looks at why you may not be functioning at your best and where the source of your problems may lie. Part Two provides helpful tips and suggestions that you can use to make improvements and be more in control of your body. Part Three looks at real-life situations to show how people in different situations have improved their professional and social life by following the principles of the Alexander Technique outlined in this book.
However, this book is not just about using one technique. It is about life. It is about doing what we want to do, what we've dreamed of doing and doing it to the best of our ability.
