" . . . I don’t want to suggest that the Alexander Technique develops a dichotomous sense, as that would be an oversimplification, but we do begin to see opposing ideas.

For example: wholeness (where every part is useful and connected) versus disconnectedness (where parts are differentiated and divided, independent and, inherently, often useless); attention (the balanced awareness of one’s self and surroundings) versus concentration (over-tense focus on certain aspects); relaxation (purposeful balance) versus collapse (a fall from balance; a loss of will or power); goal-oriented-ness and end-gaining (where the goal or end is focused on) versus the idea that each step should be an end in itself, where things are accomplished with consciousness and purpose.

Most importantly, the Alexander Technique directs each student to develop [reveal] primary control. This relationship, primary control, is found among the head, neck, and torso. This balance will be reached when we have dispelled the “postures,” both rigid and slumped, we have been taught by exemplification, and we regain this natural poise of primary control. This will allow a complete lengthening of one’s self . . ."
