How does the Alexander Technique differ from other mind/bodywork systems?

The Alexander Technique is often called a pre-technique as it does not propose exercises as in Yoga or Pilates for example.It is a method for heightening awareness, soothing the nervous system, learning to release muscles and improving overall balance and co-ordination, allowing you bring more understanding to and receive more benefit from such exercise classes or any other activity. The improved coordination helps dealing with pain and stress related problems.
