What are the basics on alexander technique that improves your stand, walk, sit and the way you speak?

The very basic fundamental requirement to function properly and be able to stand, walk, sit and speak, among other things, without harming yourself is to have an adequate relationship with the attraction of the earth (gravity). It means that the orientation of our body within (between its differents parts) and outside itself (with the environement) must be optimal. This, in the Alexander Technique, we stimulate consciously by learning to make sure that our head is free in relation to our neck, our back, and our limbs. So the starting point is to prevent a fixing of the head in relation to the neck before, during and after any reaction or movement. This requires a ot of attention at the beginning, so that it can become a conscious habit to secure this state of conscious control in activity of the whole organism.
