Pregnancy & Parenting
Years ago, when I was training to be an Alexander Technique teacher, my husband and I were at the beach, when I saw a mother talking to her small child of two or three. The mother was young and athletic, but in her bearing, she looked like a very old woman. She seemed stuck in a hunch, bending over to tend to her child. Obviously something she had been doing a lot of for several years.
“She needs Alexander lessons.” I said to my husband, rather smugly.
Several years later, I received the ultimate blessing and the ultimate test: I became pregnant with triplets. And now, as a mother of three wild children, I feel less smug. Pregnancy and Parenthood have tested me beyond anything that know-it-all on the beach could have imagined. What has been my crutch to lean on, my lovey to cling to, my secret weapon? Why the Alexander Technique, of course.
I would love to help you too.
