New! Active Relaxation; A Core Alexander Technique Practice
If you’re thinking that active relaxation seems like a contradiction in terms, it may be that you are confusing relaxing with collapsing (as in 'after a hard day with a nice chardonnay…') but, the secret to garnering the true benefits of relaxation lies in resting with true postural support. Alexander Technique based Constructive Rest is an active relaxation practice that helps to let go of tension and feel newly energized. When practiced daily for about 10-15 minutes, the body learns to appreciate this condition of fully-supported optimal-length and to extend its benefits to support all types of common or specialty activities.
