Amazon.com Review Copyright Amazon.com
By changing your posture you can look, move, and even breathe better, according to proponents of this century-old technique popular with entertainers. Developed by an actor who lost his voice due to improper posture, the Alexander Technique involves a series of subtle changes in stance and movement that, once learned, are to be incorporated into everyday life. Actor William Hurt introduces viewers to the video and demonstrates the positions and movements. Hurt must truly believe in this method because not only does he allow himself to be an on-screen guinea pig for 74 minutes, but the reclusive actor has also made rare television appearances promoting the video. However much he appears to believe in the technique, though, the Oscar winner displays uncharacteristic awkwardness in introducing and quizzing his teacher, Jane Kosminsky. A former dancer, Kosminsky is well versed in the history and method of the technique as she moves Hurt through head placement, chair work, "the Monkey" (a lifting position), walking, and finally a 22-minute self lesson. At the tape's end Kosminsky warns that a personal teacher may be needed to truly learn the technique, and offers a contact number and Web site information. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Beautiful & Excellent, January 19, 2002
Reviewer: A viewer from USA
I am a computer person who is about to get disabled due to overworked muscles and bad postures. I tried accupuncture, medication, massage...etc. whatever I could think of, to ease the pain but nothing delievered satisfactory results. This DVD along with "Chi Self Massage" surpassed the all my expectations. The first time I tried the technique I instantly felt the difference and actually felt so much lighter in my neck area. I understand that this is not a quick fix and the technique should be treated and incorporated into your life more like a habbit. You should PRACTISE the theory and technique all the time. But I can guarantee you that you will love to remember what this DVD is teaching, because you feel great. I see myself walking better, sitting better and feeling better. It makes me feel more elegant and graceful too. Also I found myself thinking more positively when I carry my body in the right way. When I have my own kids, I will teach them this technique from early age, so that they can have better postures as a way of life. --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Back Help, May 15, 2001
Reviewer: A viewer from New York, NY USA
This video helped me enormously in discovering how to begin to move (and think!) differently in order to help my back pain and daily discomfort. Giving solid examples of everyday activities, the video addresses common problems people have with the way they move and how it effects their backs--from the way they sit at their desks at work to how they carry their briefcases(much of which I was unaware I was doing). The instructor shows how with simple adjustments to your movements you can prevent injury and pain. I found it very practical and helpful in identifying my own problems, and I have given it as a gift to friends with back troubles. It's also a nice introduction to the Alexander Technique.
