Alexander hits the Antiques Roadshow

May 30, 2013

The Alexander Technique turns up in the most unexpected places. In the attached clip, the auctioneer discusses an original portrait of the great man himself: F.M. Alexander. They talk enthusiastically about the Alexander Technique, but have missed the mark somewhat. It’s a tricky subject to describe: there’s no substitute for an individual experience of the Technique by trying a lesson for yourself.

By the way, the picture was valued at £5,000. It was sold at auction for 13,000 Australian dollars, which is about £8,500.
