Famous Students of the Alexander Technique

“Mr. Alexander’s method lays hold of the individual as a whole, as a self-vitalizing agent. He reconditions and re-educates the reflex mechanisms and brings their habits into normal relation with the functioning of the organism as a whole. I regard this method as thoroughly scientific and educationally sound.” -  Professor George E. Coghill, award-winning anatomist and physiologist 

"97% of people with back pain could benefit by learning the Alexander Technique - it is only a very small minority of back pain sufferers that require medical intervention such as surgery." -  Jack Stern, spinal neurosurgeon

“The Alexander Technique gives us all things we have been looking for in a system of physical education: relief from strain due to maladjustment, and constant improvement in physical and mental health. We cannot ask for more from any system; nor, if we seriously desire to alter human beings in a desirable direction, can we ask any less.” - Aldous Huxley, author

"Mr. Alexander has done a service to the subject by insistently treating each act as involving the whole integrated individual, the whole psycho-physical man. To take a step is an affair not of this or that limb solely, but of the total neuromuscular activity of the moment - not the least of the head and neck." - Sir Charles Sherrington, Nobel Prize winner in medicine 

“I submit that Alexander demonstrated a principle of supreme importance for a holistic world-view. He made a breakthrough which is nothing less than an evolutionary step forward, when a single human being learned to take constructive, conscious control of the direction of his own use of himself.” – Sir George Trevelyan, the “grandfather” of the movement for spiritual regeneration in Britain

"Many persons have pointed out the strain which has come upon human nature in the change from a stage of animal savagery to present civilisation. No one, it seems to me, has grasped the meaning, dangers, and possibilities of this change more lucidly and completely than Mr Alexander." -   John Dewey, American philosopher

"I was dubious about the effects of the Alexander Technique when I first went in to experience it, but I found out almost immediately that the benefits were total - both physically and mentally - and, happily, have also been long-lasting.” - Joanne Woodward, actress

“The Alexander Technique transformed my life. it is the result of an acknowledged genius. I would recommend it to anyone.” - Tony Buzan, author of 'Use Your Head -The Evolving Brain'

"The Alexander Technique opens a window onto the little-known area between stimulus and response and gives you the self-knowleedge you need in order to change the pattern of your response - or, if you choose, not to make it at all." -  Frank Pierce Jones, American philologist

“The Alexander Technique helped a long-standing back problem and to get a good night’s sleep after many years of tossing and turning.” - Paul Newman, actor 

“I find the Alexander Technique very helpful in my work. Things happen without you trying. They get to be light and relaxed. You must get an Alexander teacher to show it to you.” - John Cleese, comedian and actor
