Living the Alexander Technique

Interviews with Nine Senior Teachers

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Nine distinguished teachers of the Alexander Technique speak with Ruth Rootberg about their lives, their work, and their approach to using their Alexander skills as they face aging, loss of loved ones, and the challenges of illness and injury. With over 400 years of combined teaching experience, they reveal how the Alexander Technique provides a dependable pathway to meet the ongoing challenges of daily living. 

This book is a wonderful resource for Alexander Technique students, teachers, and anyone who seeks models of aging with dignity and passion. 

“Students and teachers of the Alexander Technique will gain valuable and thought-provoking insights from these personal stories and life lessons, generously shared by master teachers of the profession.” — Missy Vineyard Ehrgood, Teacher of the Alexander Technique and author of How you Stand, How you Move, How you Live 

“In an age that ‘worships youth’ it is important to learn to overcome our fear of growing older and, ultimately, of death. This is an important book because it gives you a template for aging gracefully. The spirit of enjoying whatever each day brings and of continual learning at every stage of life infuses each of these master teachers as they discuss the Alexander Technique as a practical tool that allows life to be ‘just a little easier.’” — Michael Frederick, Alexander Technique Teacher, training director, and founding director of the International Congresses on the Alexander Technique. 

“I think it would be wonderful if, when a person turns 65 and receives a Medicare card, eligibility for the card would require lessons in the Alexander Technique.” — Sarnie Ogus Alexander Technique teacher 

Ruth Rootberg is a certified Alexander Technique teacher, Designated Linklater Voice teacher, and Certified Laban Movement Analyst. The author of many articles on the Alexander Technique, she comes from a classical voice and theater background and integrates many of these passions in her practice. Ruth lives and teaches in Amherst, Massachusetts and offers workshops in the United States and abroad.
