Alexander Technique Lesson at Home – Digital Download for a $10.00 Donation
“Dare to let it feel wrong. Take a chance on letting me give you an experience that you don’t think is right. When you walk out of this room you can always go back to what feels right. But right now, you’re allowing both of us the luxury to make a mistake.”
– Excerpt from Dare to Be Wrong, by Judith Leibowitz, compiled by Kathryn Miranda, 2007 American Center for the Alexander Technique

The final version of the MP3 is a compilation of the procedures Judy taught her students, and represents a full expression of her style, ideas, and clarity when speaking about the desired directional thinking requested of the student.
Also included is an interview with Barbara Kent, reminiscing about Judy, her life and the unique gifts she brought to teaching of the Alexander Technique.
Judy was one of the original founders and he spiritual head of ACAT, the American Center for the Alexander Technique, from 1964 until she turned over the directorship to Barbara Kent in 1981. Judy remained on the faculty until her death in 1990. Judy’s presence was a guiding light in the establishment of ACAT, as well as a continuing beacon for all of the many students who learned from her and who became Alexander Technique teachers under her guidance.
The last track of the MP3 contains some principles to keep in mind while doing the Self Lesson, as well as some practical ideas for practice, for example how to use soft bound books under the head for support.
Our thanks also go to Judy Stern for her generous donation for the creation of this MP3, and to the Board of ACAT for their vision and promise in bringing it to completion. We would love to hear from you after you listen to the lesson. Be sure to let us know what you thought, and consider making a gift to someone else who might benefit.
