Body Learning

By Michael Gelb
Holt Paperbacks; 2 edition (January 15, 1996)

In Body Learning (first published in 1981), Michael Gelb introduces F. M. Alexander’s life and journey, which lead him to his Technique for “regaining our natural poise.” Each of Alexander’s principles or “operational ideas” are introduced followed by discussions on how we learn best and how we may apply the Technique to modern life and activities. Excellent and appropriate photos spice up the engaging text. This book is a popular resource for beginners or those simply looking to refresh their inquiry into restoring their natural functioning. Recommended by David Nesmith.
