Keep The River Flowing
Nick Chapman Alexander Technique

Keep the River Flowing way beyond your Alexander Lessons.

The Ultimate self-help experience.

When we come for our lessons we can end up feeling really good. Pain-free, more confident, centred, focused. We feel ready for anything. Ready to take on the world. We have reached a certain equilibrium in mind and body. 

If you’re like me, you’ll be wondering how it all works. How can I feel so good? Why has this made me feel so much better? And there lies the problem. How do we keep the river flowing? How do we work on ourselves?

Alexander Technique is a self-help technique. The whole idea is that we are teachers. We have a responsibility to teach you how to keep this work flowing through your body! Flowing through your veins. 

The best question you can ask, and your teacher should tell you, is what is my homework? 

Because once the lesson finishes, once you walk through that door, there is only one person who can keep the river flowing. That is most profoundly and let’s face it most brilliantly-you! 

I have made a huge effort in this respect. Creating content on my YouTube channel designed to help you work on yourself.

There are many posts on instagram designed to inspire thinking about the Alexander Technique. This blog has many articles to read written over years doing the technique.

The most important thing is that you have all the resources to help you keep the river flowing.
