I posted this short Alexander Technique video on December 2, 2007. It touches on posture, computer posture, back pain and neck pain. This Alexander Technique video has been viewed around 80,000 times on Youtube. Here are a few comments from the original Youtube page:
“Mark Josefsberg is a remarkably effective and dedicated teacher of the Alexander Technique. The technique has helped me overcome injury, develop patience and poise, and has brightened my life in countless ways. Way to go, AT! Way to go, Mark!”
“Mark Jaye rocks Alexander Technique! I’ve been studying with him for over two years, and it keeps getting better.”
“I’ve been a student of Alexander Technique for 9 years and still learning. I am considering beginning lecturing on Alexander Technique to dental hygienists who suffer from so many musculoskeletal problems (like I did) due to misuse while treating patients. This is a great Alexander Technique video as it is SO hard to describe AT in words. Congrats! and Best of luck in your teaching!”
“Alexander Technique cured my 10 year chronic back pain – I love it!”
“The Alexander Technique is about releasing chronic tension. We all have it. Just more or less. I didn’t even think I had any problems or tensions until I took my first lessons. This is really great work. It creates a lot more body AND present moment awareness. My recommendation is that everybody should take classes in Alex Tech, regardless of pain or not.”
“The Alexander Technique is an invaluable tool for addressing neck, back and nerve pain. Mark is a skilled private instructor, and is gifted at training future Alexander Technique teachers. Incredible technique – amazing Alexander Technique teacher.”
The following is the text from this short Alexander Technique video:
Alexander Technique Video Text
Right now, I’m practicing the Alexander Technique. (walking)
And now… (Throwing a ball)
And now… (sitting at the computer)
The Alexander Technique is a simple, effective method, which will teach you to rid yourself of tension and pain, so that any activity becomes easier, and more fun.
You can use it (The Alexander Technique) while sitting and standing, and working at the computer. It is also used where more specialized movements are involved, like working out, yoga, and dance. The AT allows for freedom and ease while playing a musical instrument, and even while combing…your…hair.
The Alexander Technique is probably best known for improving posture, reducing pain, and preventing injury. And for providing an overall sense of well-being.
My name is Mark Josefsberg, and I’m a Certified teacher of the Alexander technique. This technique has personally helped me with oppressive pain in my neck and hands. My pain was so severe, it prevented me from performing as a professional musician. I was considering surgery to my spine, when someone recommended the Alexander Technique. Now, I can play again.
The Alexander technique taught me that by changing my postural habits I could stop my spinal compression, and alleviate my pain. This technique has enabled me to live pain-free for many years, and I’m grateful to be able to teach it now to others.
The Alexander Technique addresses both the musculo-skeletal and nervous systems and is used to alleviate back, neck and joint pain. It improves poor posture, and breathing problems, and is effective for sciatica, TMJ, RSI and more. As you practice the Alexander Technique you will not only feel better, you will appear more poised and confident as well.
People notice a difference even after a short series of lessons.
I hope you will consider how the Alexander Technique can improve your life by easing pain, enhancing a skill, increasing your overall sense of well-being. The wider implications of this technique continue to astound me.
You’re welcome to contact me for more information and to see how the Alexander Technique can help you in your life.
