Think and Move Well
In the ITM approach to the Alexander Technique we study thinking through the medium of movement.
Our students bring activities to our classes and we work with them to improve their levels of performance. An activity can range from the everyday, such as walking, to the specialised, such as playing a musical instrument.
Any individual's performance of any activity will reflect their idea of the combination and sequence of movements required. It also reflects their ideas about how to translate this into action. Beyond that, our movements reflect some of our basic beliefs about how we work.
By working with students and their activities, through questions, gentle manipulation, the sharing of Alexander's ideas and some sound anatomical information, the student can begin to unpick some of their less helpful ideas about what is required, and how it should be done.
Continuing this process can help us to train our thinking so that we develop ideas and processes that make movement more effective and efficient. This can lead to new levels of freedom and ease of movement.
The process of personal development can be continued indefinitely, to develop an increasingly effective thinking process which provides the basis of an effective and reasoned approch to the whole of our lives.
