Think More Do Less: Improve your teaching and learning of the Alexander Technique with Marjory Barlow by Seán Carey
ISBN: 978-0-9568997-9-8

Building on his much-acclaimed previous book, Alexander Technique: the Ground Rules, Seán has written a brilliantly detailed record of Marjory Barlow’s teaching of the technique for Alexander Technique teachers, trainees and advanced students. This book includes unique information about how FM Alexander taught his ‘practical procedures’ on his first teacher training course.
You will read how Marjory taught ‘pure’ Alexander Technique, why she considered this was very different from bodywork, and why this is of such relevance today.
You will also learn about FM Alexander’s 4 'little squeezes' and the Marjory Barlow 'dimple test'!

Seán Carey’s curiosity has taken him to places now, alas, unavailable to the majority of today’s Alexander teachers. His time spent documenting and recording one-to-one lessons and group sessions with FM Alexander’s niece and first-generation teacher, Marjory Barlow, is invaluable because it gives us a virtual fly-on-the-wall experience of lessons that FM himself would have given. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, especially as a working text for Alexander trainee teachers, and perhaps even more so for those of us teaching day-to-day, and possibly slowly drifting away from FM’s original understanding and teaching of his technique.
Dr Barry Collins BDS, Alexander Technique teacher

A must-have Alexander book – it is clearly written, easy to follow and pitched exactly right.
