The Alexander Technique & Banjo Playing

Posted by Boadicea on Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Due to getting some pain and tension after practising awhile I am now doing The Alexander Technique, so I am starting my practicing sessions with a 12 minute semi supine (guided audio) where I lie on the ground. It is 12 minutes long, as I have had chronic pain during my life it is a really good thing to do, and it is a thing that I am trying to make a habit as part of my life.

This book might be of interest to some Banjo Hangout members.

"Body, Breath and Being: A New Approach to the Alexander Technique" by Carolyn Nicholls
D & B Publishing, 11 Jan. 2014 New fully revised and updated edition, complete with 2 brand new chapters on Chronic Pain and Well-being.

Since I bought the book I have been using the (free) audio files that you can listen to or Download Audio files in mp3 format: http://www.dandbpublishing.com/book/body-breath-and-being-2nd-edition

It might not interest anyone else but it being most helpful for my body. Our bodies are instruments as well, like our banjos, and they need some fine tuning from time to time.
