What isn’t the Alexander Technique?

Here’s some of what the Alexander Technique isn’t: It isn’t yoga, Pilates, Reiki, or chiropractic. It’s not physical therapy or acupuncture, and it’s not Feldenkrais. It’s not religion, meditation, or a spiritual practice. It’s not football, ballet, bowling, or sewing, though you employ the Alexander Technique while doing those things. It is a mind/body technique, but not a form of analysis, or an exercise program. You use the Alexander Technique while you’re doing anything. Or nothing at all.
