About the Author:

Missy Vineyard is one of the foremost master teachers of the Alexander Technique in the United States today. Vineyard is the director of the Alexander Technique School of New England (ATSNE), which she founded in 1987, and the author of numerous articles on the technique. For the last 19 years she has devoted the majority of her schedule to teacher training and to developing a unique, systematic curriculum designed to ensure the highest level of hands-on skill among the graduates of ATSNE. In addition to her work at ATSNE, she maintains a busy private teaching practice and conducts workshops on the Technique to a wide variety of groups, large and small, young and old. She lives in Amherst, Mass.

Review:

How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live by Missy Vineyard is an engagingly presented, comprehensive book with usable, practical advice on the complex study of the Alexander Technique. Insightfully, she has emphasized and expanded the important concept of inhibition, an often-overlooked or understated aspect of the Alexander Technique that is the key to change. I applaud her work. -- Evangeline Benedetti, cellist, New York Philharmonic, certified teacher of the Alexander Technique

How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live is at once an intellectual tour de force integrating knowledge from several disciplines and a practical guide to psychosomatic re-education. Theoretically informed yet thoroughly accessible, it makes fascinating reading. Contemporary interest in the representation and uses of the body will make this book very valuable to students of cultural studies as well as teachers and students of Alexander Technique. Missy Vineyard writes eloquently and from a position of mastery of her material. How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live is a pleasure to recommend. -- Murray M. Schwartz, Professor of Literature and Psychoanalysis, Emerson College

A unique book in the Alexander literature, How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live examines in depth the mental processes needed for successful mastery of the Technique. Missy Vineyard's unusual approach to the difficult subject of inhibition will give the reader many new and useful insights that significantly will enhance freedom and coordination. -- Paul Garner, clarinetist, Dallas Symphony Orchestra; music faculty, Southern Paul Garner, clarinetist, Dallas Symphony Orchestra; music faculty, Southern Methodist University

An uncommonly clear introduction to the rationale for the Alexander Technique and the perfect accompaniment to hands-on Alexander lessons ... How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live is an engaging invitation to explore the Alexander Technique as a way to inhabit our bodies more enjoyably over a lifetime. -- Frances V. Moulder, PhD

Missy Vineyard enlightens both the teacher and the student with her original thesis bridging the working principles of the Alexander Technique with current knowledge in areas of neuroscience, human behavior, performance and medical rehabilitation while bringing new meaning to the self-help book ... She reaches beyond the typical Alexander Technique primer to shed light on the subtleties of human behavior with shrewd observation, original thinking, and rare honesty. -- Idelle S. Packer, MS, PT, certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, owner of Body Sense, Inc., an integrative physical therapy practice in Asheville, NC

Missy Vineyard has developed an innovative and creative approach to teaching the basic mind-body skills that are the foundation of the Alexander Technique. She has a rare talent for explaining key ideas in simple, everyday language. Missy tells engaging stories about herself and her students to illustrate her points, then she presents a sequence of `self-exercises' that teach the thinking at the heart of the Alexander Technique. By breaking down the learning process into small steps and avoiding jargon, she makes it easy to understand the interaction between mind and body. I have experimented with these `self-exercises' myself and tried them with my students and they are truly effective teaching tools! -- Phyllis G. Richmond, certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and editor of AmSAT News

Missy Vineyard has distilled 30 years of work with the Alexander Technique into this volume. My own experience of this Technique, which spans the same length of time, has continued to reinforce my estimation of its power. I wish the success of this book to encourage many readers to undertake the quest for this invaluable experience of rediscovery in the wisdom of the human body. -- Chungliang Al Huang, founder/president of Living Tao Foundation; author of Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain, and Essential Tai Ji; and coauthor of Tao: The Watercourse Way, Thinking Body, and Dancing Mind

Missy Vineyard is an inspired and inspiring teacher, and her book about the Alexander Technique will help many people become aware of their own potential for self mastery. How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live deserves a wide readership. -- Alice Parker, founder of Melodious accord, board member of Chorus America, composer, conductor, and teacher

Thanks for the opportunity to look at this book. I've been an Alexander Technique student on and off for several years. Although this book is readable and interesting, I think it could use an appendix of illustrations of common `exercises'--otherwise, it's extraordinarily text heavy. -- Shantia Anderheggen

Vineyard's book is particularly successful in two ways. Her description of the Alexander Technique is clear, comprehensive, compelling, and pragmatic. She has also made an important contribution to our appreciation of the value of the Alexander Technique through personal stories of challenge and accomplishment. -- David Feldshuh, MD, PhD, professor of theater, Cornell University; artistic director, Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts

Descripción Avalon Publishing Group, United States, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Alexander Technique (AT) is a remarkably simple but powerful method for learning to skillfully control how your brain and body interact, allowing you to better coordinate your movements while increasing the accuracy of your mind s thoughts and perceptions. Now, in How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live , leading Alexander Technique master teacher Missy Vineyard sheds a completely fresh light on this revolutionary method and, in the process, offers path-breaking insight into the mind-body connection. Vineyard thoroughly explains and teaches the central skills of the AT through simple self-experiments, and she offers engaging stories of students in their lessons to show its effective application across a range of disciplines, including the performing arts, athletics, health, psychology, and education. How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live introduces us to a world within ourselves that we know surprisingly little about- and thereby helps us to understand why we often cannot do what we should be able to do, why we harm ourselves with chronic tension and anxiety, and why our thoughts often seem beyond our control. Vineyard is also the first AT teacher to draw on cutting-edge research in neuroscience and to synthesize those findings with AT theories and techniques. She fully illuminates the benefits to be reaped by mastery of the Alexander Technique, which include: Release from acute or chronic physical pain Enhanced mental attention and focus Reduced anxiety Improved balance and coordination Relief from tension and stress Increased ease and efficiency performing precise movement skills.
