Alexander Technique teacher Sandra Bain Cushman frequently works with musicians; often those who attend Robert Fripp's Guitar Craft sessions.
No one ever teaches us how to manage and operate the wonderous gift that is our body. We inhabit it in total ignorance and often are fighting against the natural grace and beauty of this "amazing design."
But all is not lost. We can stop getting in the way of the body and "support the intention of the original design."
Meeting Sandra was one of the best things about the all-too-brief Guitar Craft session held in Snowshoe, WV. Unlike the intense, "sweating bullets" guitar sessions with master Fripp, Sandra's gentle instruction about the Alexander Technique was an island of tranquility.
Sandra has a free podcast about the Alexander Technique as it relates to other mind-body disciplines. Listen here.
