By the end of this year, I’ll be a certified teacher of Alexander Technique.
Why is this important to me? Well, I never graduated from college. I got sick and had to drop out short of my undergraduate degree. This will be my first tertiary certificate. This is my equivalent of college.
Alexander Technique (AT) will be an honorable way to earn a living. It’s a happy healthy tranquil line of work. It connects me to a great community of AT teachers. I can go anywhere in the world and connect with fellow AT teacher.
AT gives me a legitimate way to teach people, to heal people, to touch people, to transform people.
Teaching will help me bond with others. It creates opportunities to teach at a university, just like my dad did.
AT is a cool thing to talk about with strangers.
It ups my social status. I have jedi skills.
AT improves my health.
AT gives me a clear identity.
AT opens up the world to me. More is possible now that I have my AT skills. I can get that MFA in Writing. AT allows me to do more of life and to do it easily and gracefully.
AT gives me more energy. AT gives me tranquility. Much of my life, I’ve felt like I was one bad decision from disaster and that if I did not throttle my instincts, I would make that one bad decision that would preclude any further decisions.
AT helps me think more clearly.
AT gives me a health mission in life.
AT makes me feel and look more alert.
AT makes me look better. Younger, vibrant, in the moment. I drop my masks. My face becomes more expressive.
AT makes me a better lover.
AT smooths the rough edges of my personality.
AT helps me recover from panic, fear and those scary out of control emotions.
AT helps me escape from my compulsive thinking, talking and doing.
Without AT, I tend to walk through life slumped down and defeated. With AT, I’m up and bouncy. I move like a winner.
