Q: What has chopping parsnips got to do with the Alexander Technique?
Q: How come?
A: Because the Alexander Technique is about making the best use of what you’ve got.
By which I don’t mean finishing up those wrinkly old potatoes in the bottom of the vegetable basket. I mean making the most of what you have available in you; your arms, legs, head, feet, knees. In fact, your whole body. Taking a little minute to think about what these various bits do when you do things like chopping a parsnip.
