Description of the 2-DVD video set
DVD 1: Standing on Top of the World —
84 minute DVD Video
(in either NTSC or PAL format)
NTSC — ISBN: 978-1-897452-93-6, PAL — ISBN: 978-1-897452-94-3
Filmed at The Stratford Public Library, Stratford, Ontario, Canada, January 21, 2011
This video is of a 84 minute practical demonstration given as a public service at a library in advance of a 3-day workshop on the "Standing on Top of the World" material. The series of demonstrations in this session form the basis for understanding the principles of balance and support. David also highlights at each stage the importance of the sensory experiences that we need to get in touch with in order to be able to use ourselves well.
Follow along with the presentation as if you were in the audience and you’ll get a step-by-step understanding of the principles of balance and support, and experience for yourself how your marvelous system sends you tangible and clear signals of everything you need to be grounded, free, and use yourself well.
This is the introductory part of a longer 3-day workshop.
DVD 2: On Balance and Support —
60 minute DVD Video (in either NTSC or PAL format)
NTSC — ISBN: 978-1-897452-72-1, PAL — ISBN: 978-1-903518-46-5
This video is of a 1-hour lecture demonstration given at an Alexander Technique Teacher training course in
London, UK. The series of demonstrations in this session form the basis for understanding the principles of
balance and support. David also highlights at each stage the importance of the sensory experiences that we need
to get in touch with in order to be able to use ourselves well. This video forms a great teaching resource with
its pointers for teachers about how to be aware of their pupil's balance and support, how to build principles
and experiences of balance and support into each lesson, and of course, teachers can use the progression of the
demonstration series itself to teach it to their pupils so that they too gain the understanding in a way they
can use in their daily lives.
