Freedom to Change: The Development and Science of the Alexander Technique

Author/Editor: Frank Pierce Jones

Frank Pierce Jones trained with F. M. Alexander from 1941 to 1944. Drawing on his long association with F. M. Alexander and his brother A. R. Alexander, Jones introduces the Technique by relating Alexander’s story in biographical form. Jones presents the most important results from 25 years of research into the Technique. He describes some of the underlying mechanisms at work in the Technique and describes how the conscious mind activates anti-gravity reflexes. In ""Notes on Teaching"" Jones summarizes his teaching experiences and sets out principles for good teaching practice. Throughout the book he emphasizes the importance of an ""expanded field of attention."" First published as Body Awareness in Action in 1976, this edition contains a new foreword by Theodore Dimon Jr., four color plates and a new appendix (16 pages) which contains Jones’ outline for a fifteenth chapter plus sketches and observations from his notebook. [xvii+212 pages, pb, 26 b/w illustrations, 4 col. plates, 202x135mm, index, 1997 (first published 1976), Mouritz, imported]
