aka The Alexander Regeneration
The Alexander Technique, is, at its heart, about posture. The idea is that when mindfulness is applied to one's posture this improvement snowballs into a broad range of health and well-being benefits.
A supplement to this is a mindfulness of breathing, relaxation and one's outlook in general.
The Alexander Technique was developed by Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869 - 1955).
The Alexander Technique has a concept of "conscious de-control", performed through "central control". Basically, focusing on a general balance so as to stop bad habits and allow good ones to come. Focus, to allow instinct to come to the foreground.
Aldous Huxley preached it.
George E. Coghill, of the Wistar Institute in the USA
Coghill also wrote an (unpublished) essay on the teaching of Alexander in which he said that Alexander established reintegration of the organism-as-a-whole by teaching civilized man to let the total pattern of each reaction to a stimulus precede the faulty partial pattern reaction.
