The Three Widths

We fall into the trap of thinking a lot about length – the vertical plane is more obvious and habitual.

Yet Alexander’s directions were clear “to let the back lengthen and widen” both are interdependent arising.

Think of the three widths:

  • Hip joints (bottom of the spine articulation)
  • Upper arm joints (the meeting of the arms into the torso)
  • Between the ears (top of the spine articulation)

Having the full back in view.
