Turn an ordinary workout into a work of art through the internationally acclaimed Alexander Technique. Although people are exercising more these days, they're often doing so incorrectly--which leads to pleasure-destroying pain and injury. The Alexander Technique can fix that, by reeducating and rejuvenating both the body and mind, and releasing unnecessary physical tension. Using this simple method, exercisers will quickly improve coordination and posture and gain increased bodily awareness. A wide range of workouts receive close attention here, including resistance training, gym machines, and fitness classes such as aerobics, step, pilates, yoga, and Tai chi. Full-color photographs throughout show the right and wrong techniques, making this instructive guide the perfect solution for every frustrated (and aching!) gym-goer!Balk, Malcolm is the author of 'Mastering the Art of Working Out ', published 2007 under ISBN 9781843403500 and ISBN 1843403501.
